Ticats work out Canadian kickers

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats hunt for a kicker is continuing — this time with candidates from north of the border.

Sources says the team worked out several Canadian kickers at Tim Hortons Field Wednesday, including the University of Ottawa’s Lewis Ward, the University of Montreal’s David Deschamps and Carleton’s Mike Domagala.

Ward and Domagala are eligible for the 2017 CFL Draft this Sunday.

  1. Where’s Sandro?!?!?

  2. poor sandro … ticats should have heeded his pre-ticat career record at iws. he was only 10 of 20. it seemed that got into his head once the wheels got wobbly. thf/iws a tough place to kick.
    that said: i’d rather have a canadian kicker, if one can do the job (kicking, kicking off, punting) well.

    Hey, yo … the Dario Cueto says this search for a Canadian K is nice & all, but it is just a glorified publicity stunt.

      Anybody who blathers nonsense in the 3rd person is a moron…

        As far as I know, Dario Cueto does not even use “Hey, yo…” in Lucha Underground. I don’t know this positively because I quit watching them after the opening of season 2 where for some reason, Vampiro is seen breaking out of a mental hospital. WTF.

          Hey, yo … the Dario Cueto is a TiCat season ticket holder and an astute commentator on all things CFL. Holla if you hear me !!!

        Actually I find it most amusing. Might need a good laugh or two should the wheels fall off the Austin bus this season…which is a good possibility.

    A story in La Presse had U of M kicker Felix Menard-Briere also trying out with the Cats this wk.

    • Here on 3DN I saw that Menard-Briere had been invited to the Giants mini camp too. It’d be nice if they could find a Canadian to do all three or even two Canadians – one for place kicking and another one for punts. That works well in Calgary with Maver and Paredes.

    The Cats are hunting desperately to find a kicker that will leave for the NFL next year.

  6. why dont they go vanguslick who was on the riders injury list lasdt year

    the ticats should trade with the riders for van glyswick who was the top rated licker drafted last year.

    • If I recall correctly the Ticats worked out Van Gylswyk ahead of the draft last year so maybe weren’t that impressed with him. Of course they may have been planning to before Jones jumped in to beat them to the punch – though why CJ thought he needed another kicker when he already had a kicker and punter is a head scratcher to me!
