TORONTO, April 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Coldwater, ON's Team Howard and Scotland's Team Muirhead have been crowned victors of the 2013 Players' Championship , the final event of the 2012-13 Grand Slam of Curling season. Team Howard and Team Muirhead were awarded the Players' Championship trophies and prize money this afternoon at Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto. In total, the five-day tournament - featuring the top 30 men's and women's teams in the world - awarded a combined purse of $200,000.

In a nail-biting showdown, skip Glenn Howard edged out Winnipeg's Team McEwen in a tight 4-3 final. As winners of the Players' Championship , Howard received $26,000 as well as an additional $50,000 as a part of the Grand Slam of Curling's $100,000 bonus split between the top three men's teams of the season, with second place Team McEwen receiving $30,000, and third place Team Stoughton taking home $20,000. This was Howard's second win of the Grand Slam season after clinching the Canadian Open in Kelowna, B.C.
