HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that veteran Canadian receiver Dave Stala has signed a new contract that will keep him in black and gold through 2014.
Stala enters his fifth season in Hamilton in 2013 after spending the first six years of his career with the Montreal Alouettes. In 130 regular season games, the Saint Mary’s product has caught 398 passes for 5,044 yards and 27 touchdowns. He is one of nine current CFL players that have registered over 5,000 receiving yards in their career.
