The Edmonton Elks have signed Canadian receiver Frédérik Antoine.

The six-foot-one, 217-pound native of Quebec City, Que. was a fifth-round pick of the Montreal Alouettes in the 2024 CFL Draft. He attended training camp with the team but was released as part of final roster cutdowns.

The 26-year-old was one of the top performers at this year’s CFL Combine in Winnipeg, running a 4.53-second forty-yard dash and recording 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He made 29 catches for 330 yards and one touchdown over 13 games at Université Laval, winning the Vanier Cup as a member of the Rouge et Or in 2022.

The Elks have also released Canadian defensive back Bruno Legacé from the practice roster.

The Edmonton Elks (0-2) will visit the Toronto Argonauts (1-0) on Saturday, June 22 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
