TORONTO -- Receiver Maurice Price, who scored three touchdowns as the Calgary Stampeders held on for a 37-34 Labour Day win over the Edmonton Eskimos, was named the CFL's offensive player of the week Tuesday.

Price had five catches for 165 yards in the game, which saw Edmonton erase a 37-7 deficit in the fourth quarter Monday. Pope had TD grabs of 66, 42 and 33 yards.

Teammate Charleston Hughes captured defensive player honours. The Calgary defensive lineman had three of the Stampeders' seven sacks against Edmonton.

Eskimos' kick-returner Joe Burnett was the top special-teams player. He had four punt returns for 91 yards and a 24-yard kickoff return versus Calgary.

Montreal linebacker Marc-Olivier Brouillette claimed top Canadian honours. The Montreal native had six tackles, two sacks and a key forced fumble that teammate Shea Emery returned 37 yards for a TD in a 20-9 road win over the Toronto Argonauts on Tuesday night.
