MONTREAL -- The Montreal Alouettes announced on Tuesday that the team has reached an agreement with non-import fullback Patrick Lavoie on a new three-year deal.
Lavoie, who was named the Alouettes’ Most Outstanding Rookie in 2012, will now be under contract with Montreal through the 2015 season. The Alouettes’ top draft pick of the 2012 CFL draft (11th overall), amassed 307 receiving yards – good for sixth on the team. His 33 receptions marked the most by an Alouettes rookie since Ben Cahoon caught the same in 1998.
The Laval Rouge et Or product also added four receiving touchdowns. Four of his first 12 career catches were for touchdowns including a game-winner in the dying moments against the Calgary Stampeders on July 12.
