EDMONTON — Calgary Stampeders receiver Lemar Durant has been named the top Canadian of the 106th Grey Cup game.

The 26-year-old Vancouver native hooked up with quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell for a 17-yard touchdown reception in the Stampeders’ 27-16 win over the Ottawa Redblacks on Sunday night at Commonwealth Stadium.

Durant, a Simon Fraser product, finished with four catches for 30 yards and also had a 22-yard rush.

Durant has played with the Stampeders since 2015 when he was drafted 18th overall by Calgary.
