Demski played in 40 career games and recording 69 receptions for 725 yards and three touchdowns. He also registered 84 punt returns for 729 yards and one touchdown through his first three CFL seasons.
Before joining the CFL, Demski spent four seasons with the Bisons and was named a CIS All-Canadian and Canada West All-Star in all four seasons.
