Canada's Brad Gushue clinched a spot in the playoffs at the world men's curling championship on Thursday, picking up a 7-4 win over Norway's Magnus Ramsfjell at IWC Arena in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.

The victory improved the Canadians' record to 8-1, with their next match coming at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday against the undefeated rink of Sweden's Nicklas Edin.

Edin (9-0) also punched his ticket to the playoffs with a 6-4 win on Thursday over the United States' John Shuster.

For Gushue, making the playoffs at worlds also means he and his team secured the first men's berth available for the Canadian Olympic curling trials in Halifax in November of 2025.

The first spot was available to this year's Brier winner, pending a top-six finish at the world championships.
