SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. - Despite plenty of team restructuring on the Canadian men's curling scene in recent weeks, Team Jennifer Jones is vowing to remain intact for another four years.

"We are excited to officially announce that our team is fully committed to staying together and working hard to get another chance to represent Canada at the Olympics," said Jones, who skipped the rink to gold at the Sochi Games with third Kaitlyn Lawes, second Jill Officer and lead Dawn McEwen.

"We truly enjoy playing together and we share the same goals and commitment. And now that we've been to a Winter Olympics, the desire to get to another one will make us work even harder for the next four years."

The team will close out its season this week at the Grand Slam Players' Championships in Summerside, P.E.I.

The Jones rink did announce one change in a statement released Tuesday by the Canadian Curling Association. Coach Janet Arnott won't be returning and has decided to devote her time to friends and family.

A number of Canadian men's teams have made lineup changes in recent weeks.
