OTTAWA - Alison Kreviazuk is moving to Sweden.

The Team Homan second announced Tuesday that she is moving to be with her boyfriend, Fredrik Lindberg from Team Sweden.

"I consider myself so incredibly lucky to have played the past 13 years with Emma (Miskew) and Rachel by my side, and four unforgettable years with Lisa (Weagle)," said Kreviazuk.

She will stay with the team for their last event -- the Players Championship. Joanne Courtney (the bandana second) from Team Val Sweeting will move to Ottawa from Alberta to replace Kreviazuk next season.

Kreviazuk is the most approachable member the rink. In fact, the players at the world championships voted her the Frances Brodie Award for sportsmanship. She was the player who "by deed and action in the course of their performance, best exemplified the traditional curling values of skill, honesty, fair play, friendship and sportsmanship."
