Calgary punter Burke Dales is remaining a Stampeder.

The non-import free agent signed a contract extension with the club on Tuesday. Details of the contract were not available.

Dales initially joined the Stamps in 2005 and spent four seasons with the club before becoming a free agent after Calgary's 2008 championship season.

The Concordia product enters his fifth season with the Red and White and has suited up in 64 regular-season contests and four playoff games over that span. He is the Stamps all-time leader in career punting average (minimum 100 attempts) at 45.0 and was a West Division all-star in 2006.

''We're happy to have Burke back with the Stampeders,'' head coach/general manager John Hufnagel said in a press release. ''He had a very good 2008 season and steadily improved as the season went on. I'm sure we'll see more of the same in 2009.''

Dales averaged a career-high 46.1 yards per punt and led all CFL punters with a 38.1 net yards per punt average in 2008.
 
''I'm just glad to be back with the Stamps,'' said Dales. ''This team has become a family for me, Calgary is home and I'm very excited to be back. I can't wait for the season to get started and I'm Iooking forward to competing for another Grey Cup.''
