The Winnipeg Blue Bombers scooped up more homegrown talent on Tuesday by signing running back Kienan LaFrance to a one-year contract.

The Bombers previously announced the signing of Nic Demski — both former Manitoba Bisons players.

LaFrance last played with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and was originally selected in the sixth round, 45th overall, by Ottawa in the 2015 CFL Draft.


The Winnipeg native and Grey Cup champion arrives in Winnipeg for his fourth CFL season in 2018. He previously recorded 111 carries for 453 yards and two touchdowns, while also registering 28 receptions for 200 yards and two touchdowns.

In a third signing, the Bombers announced international defensive back Chandler Fenner to a two-year contract. Fenner spent the past two seasons with the B.C. Lions.
