What was old is new again for Glenn Howard.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Richard Hart, 45, is coming out of retirement to play third for Howard's Coldwater, Ont. rink, reuniting a back-end that was one of the best in the world for over a decade.

The pair were able to capture a Brier and world championship together back in 2007 before Hart decided to leave the game in 2011.

Wayne Middaugh, Howard's vice for the last three years, will leave the team at season's end.

Howard, 51, is also bringing in Jon Mead to play second after he played third for Jeff Stoughton's rink this season.

The move was needed after Howard's second Brent Laing left to join the new foursome of skip Kevin Koe, Marc Kennedy and Ben Hebert.

Craig Savill will remain the team's lead.

This season was one of worst of Howard's career, as he failed to qualify for the Brier for the first time in eight years. He also had a disappointing showing at the Canadian Olympic Trials in December.

The final Grand Slam event of the 2013-14 season is the Players' Championship from April 15-20 in Summerside, PEI.
