WINNIPEG - You could call him curling's latest version of a hired gun.

Winnipeg's Ryan Fry has gone from playing third for Manitoba's Jeff Stoughton at the 2007 Brier, then competed at the 2009, 2010, 2011 and '12 Canadian championships with Newfoundland's Brad Gushue.

The son of former Manitoba Brier champion Barry (The Snake) Fry then hooked up with Northern Ontario's Brad Jacobs. With Jacobs, Fry became only the second curler to represent three different provinces at the Brier, but he finally won one of his own in 2013.

Now playing third for Jacobs, the Sault Ste. Marie crew has already qualified for the playoffs at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials.

In fact, Jacobs beat Alberta's Kevin Martin 5-4 at the MTS Centre on Thursday night. Jacobs improved to 6-0 and has secured a berth into Sunday's final. Martin drops to 5-1, but will still be in Saturday's semifinal.
