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.
