Ben Hebert | Career 

Early Career

In 2005, the Canadian champion played for Pat Simmons’ Saskatchewan-based rink in the Brier for the first time.

He didn’t become a household name in curling until he joined Kevin Martin’s powerhouse squad in Alberta.

Hebert did, however, win his first Brier in 2008 with sweeping partner Marc Kennedy.

In Grand Forks, North Dakota, he also won his first world championship.

Hebert is widely regarded as one of the top sweepers in the game, and he is not afraid to present his expertise on the ice.

Recent Career 

As recorded, Hebert was the lead for Pat Simmons from 2004 to 2006, and he competed in two Briers for Saskatchewan.

Ben Hebert was also a member of Team Canada’s World Junior Curling Championships- winning team in 2003.

Hebert moved to Alberta and served for John Morris for a short time. On the other hand, Ben later joined Morris to play for Kevin Martin.

He won the Canada Cup with his current team and finished fourth at the Tim Hortons Brier in 2007.

Hebert was a part of the 2008 Tim Hortons Brier-winning Alberta team, followed by the World Men’s Curling Championship. 

In 2009, Hebert was named Team Alberta’s Lead for the second time. Furthermore, the team created a new Brier record by winning 26 games.

The player’s Championship was then won by Team Martin and Ben, capping off a fantastic 2009/2010 season.

In 2009, in a final game versus Glenn Howard’s rink, Ben’s opponent, Richard Hard, accused him of using an illegal brushing technique.

Replays of the incident show Hebert lifting his broom vertically off the ice rather than off to the side.

Furthermore, the strategy is occasionally employed to slow down by dumping debris in front of the rock.

The rock he was sweeping was quite hefty. Hence, the rock may have veered slightly off track due to Hebert’s strategy.

The question of whether or not the act was deliberate was left unresolved.

In Ben’s Opinion, Who Is The Biggest Threat To Play Against? Or Any Other Team He Doesn’t Want To Be A Part Of?

Because all of the best teams are so good, he despises playing with them. According to Ben, it’s likely Ryan Harnden, the Brad Jacobs team’s captain. 

He stated, 

“Out there, he’s a bit of a bully. He’s enraged, and he’s constantly chirping. We’re friends, so it’s a give-and-take situation. I’m not the easiest opponent to beat either.”
