The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed Canadian fullback Charlie Power, the team announced on Monday. He was scheduled to become a free agent on Tuesday.

“I’m happy to be back for another year,” said Power in a statement. “Calgary is home and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I’m looking forward to getting back together with the team in 2023 and pursuing the ultimate goal –winning the Grey Cup.”

The 31-year-old has played 100 career games with the Stampeders, recording 80 special teams tackles, three forced fumbles, three blocked punts, seven receptions for 37 yards, and one carry for three yards. He missed the entire 2021 season after suffering a torn Achilles.

“Charlie has always been one of our core special-teams players,” said general manager and head coach Dave Dickenson. “He worked hard to get back on the field in 2022 after his Achilles injury and we’re excited to have him back for another season.”

The six-foot-three, 250-pounder was a fourth-round pick in the 2013 CFL Draft out of the University of Saskatchewan.
