Saskatchewan has signed Canuck offensive lineman Brendon LaBatte to a four-year contract extension.
The deal will run through to the end of the 2021 season.
The 31-year-old missed most of the 2016 season, but he’s returned to health and form in 2017. Originally drafted sixth overall by Winnipeg in 2008, LaBatte signed with the Riders in 2012. In 2013 he was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Lineman and four other times earned CFL all-star honours. That same season the Riders won the Grey Cup on home soil.
LaBatte continues to be a reliable Canadian on the offensive front. During his career, he’s played in 155 games over 10 seasons.
The Weyburn, Saskatchewan native played his university football at Regina for the Rams.
