Brendan "B. J." Neufeld [1] (born February 28, 1986) is a Canadian curler from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Neufeld plays third for the Kevin Koe rink, and previously played third for the McEwen team in Winnipeg, before the team disbanded following the 2017-18 curling season. He started curling around the age of ten and, like older brother Denni Neufeld, cites the achievements of his father as leading his interest into the game of curling.[2] His father is Chris Neufeld who was a three-time Manitoba curling champion and one time Labatt Brier champion in 1992 as part of the Vic Peters team.[2]

Neufeld was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As a junior curler, Neufeld was a three-time provincial junior champion of Manitoba in 2004, 2005, and 2007. He finished as a national junior semi-finalist at the 2004 Canadian Junior Curling Championships.[2]

Neufeld previously coached the Briane Meilleur rink.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Neufeld is employed as a CPGA Golf professional at the Larters at St. Andrews Golf & Country Club. He is married to Sarah Neufeld and they have one daughter.[4][5]
