Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones has another Grand Slam trophy to add to the collection.

Jones claimed her ninth career Grand Slam of Curling title on Sunday after edging out Casey Scheidegger of Lethbridge, Alta., 8-7 in the women's final.

It's also the second straight Grand Slam victory for Team Jones after winning the Masters in October.

"It feels amazing, it's always so hard to win a Slam," said Jones. "We've been working hard and making some big shots when we have to."

Jones, the reigning Olympic champion, is supported by third Kaitlyn Lawes, second Jill Officer and lead Dawn McEwen.

The men's side had a first-time champion with Scotland's Bruce Mouat taking home the trophy.

Team Mouat earned a 9-4 victory over first-time Grand Slam finalist Chang-Min Kim South Korea.

"I'm really excited," said the 23-year-old Mouat, who becomes the youngest men's skip to capture a Grand Slam title.

"It's so tough, it's unbelievable really just the competition we've had. We've played so well and hopefully, it's a sign of things to come."
