The Calgary Stampeders re-signed Canadian receiver Colton Hunchak, the team announced on Thursday.

The Calgary native has played 42 regular-season games for the Stamps since being selected by the club in the eighth round, 73rd overall, in the 2019 CFL Draft. The 25-year-old has 38 catches for 547 yards in 42 career games.

“We’re excited to have Colton back,” said general manager and head coach Dave Dickenson. “He’s consistently made our team better since he joined the Stampeders and I look forward to seeing him expand his role in 2023.”

“I’m extremely grateful to be back with the Stampeders for the 2023 season,” said Hunchak. “Calgary has been known for its winning tradition and I know without a doubt we have a special group of guys to continue that and work towards our goal of bringing the Grey Cup back to Calgary.”

Prior to joining the Stampeders, Hunchak was a two-time second-team Ontario University Athletics all-star with the York Lions. In 2018, the five-foot-11, 203-pound pass catcher finished fourth in the OUA with 58 receptions and had 610 receiving yards and six touchdowns. In 2016, he earned second-team all-conference honours after making 43 catches for 588 yards and five touchdowns.
