Saskatchewan Roughrider receiver Chris Getzlaf has been named the CFL Gibson’s Finest Canadian Player of the Week.
Getzlaf received the award following his performance in Saturday’s 31-29 loss to the Toronto Argonauts. The seven-year Rider continued his hot streak catching five passes for a season high 133 yards and two touchdowns.
Through eleven games this season, the 30 year-old Regina product has 41 receptions and leads the Riders with 708 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Saturday was also his seventh career 100-yard game.
This is the fourth time in his career that Getzlaf has been named Canadian player of the week.
It is the ninth time this season that a Rider has earned player of the week honours after Kory Sheets (twice), Renauld Williams (twice), Tyron Brackenridge, Darian Durant, Rob Bagg, and Jock Sanders have all picked up weekly awards.
