Canadian receiver Michael Klukas re-signs with Stampeders

The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed national receiver Michael Klukas.

Klukas spent his first full season as member of the Stamps in 2019, making 11 starts in 13 games played. He recorded 16 receptions for 169 yards and added three carries for 29 yards. Klukas, who finished the season on the practice roster, also tallied one defensive tackle.

A Calgary native, Klukas originally signed with the Stamps on December 7, 2017. He spent three months on the practice roster during the 2018 season before being released on September 7, 2018. He then re-signed with the Stampeders on December 19, 2018.

“Michael is a speedy player with the potential to build on the positive steps he took during his rookie season,” president and general manager John Hufnagel said. “I look forward to seeing Michael compete at training camp and try and earn a bigger role in the offence.”

The 25-year-old attended St. Mary’s High School before starring for the University of Calgary Dinos.

“I’m very grateful to be able to continue my career in my hometown with the Red and White,” Klukas said. “I look forward to attacking this off-season and coming back at a higher level for my teammates and this organization in 2020.”
