The Elks have signed Canadian running back Ante Milanovic-Litre and released American quarterback Dakota Prukop and American defensive back Darius Williams.

Milanovic-Litre joins the Elks after playing his first four CFL seasons with the Calgary Stampeders (2017-19, 2021). The Simon Fraser University product was originally drafted by the Stamps 28th overall in the 2017 CFL Draft and brings 55 regular season games of experience, featuring on special teams and at running back.

The Vancouver, B.C. native has 351 career rushing yards and two touchdowns, while registering 30 career special teams tackles. He was a Grey Cup champion with Calgary during the Stamps’ title run in 2018.

Prukop played eight games for the Elks last season, completing 18-of-26 pass attempts. The former Oregon quarterback threw one touchdown pass, while rushing for two more after joining the Green and Gold in late July last season following his release from the Stampeders.

Williams appeared in all 14 of Edmonton’s games last season as a rookie, recording 30 defensive tackles and a forced fumble.
