RIDERS SIGN KIENAN LAFRANCE

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national running back Kienan LaFrance.    

LaFrance (5'9 – 205) signs with the Green and White after spending the previous two seasons with the Ottawa Redblacks. The 25-year-old joined the Redblacks after being selected by the team in the sixth round (45th overall) of the 2015 CFL Draft.

In 16 regular season appearances last year, LaFrance had 37 carries for 163 yards while adding 12 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown. The University of Manitoba product broke out during the East Final where he racked up 157 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. He then followed it up with 42 yards on 11 carries and six catches for 31 yards as the Redblacks won the 2016 Grey Cup.

Potential to be a younger version of Andrew Harris. Good times ahead!

I wouldn't pop the champagne over this signing. An ok RB that had one good game in the playoffs.

not 100% sure on this guy but warming up to him. He had one or 2 good games so lets see how he does.

An average of just over ten yards per game last year. Real powerhouse.

What math makes his average ten per carry on the season?

Nice a Canadian RB! Oh wait we had a proven one last year and never used him...

My old man says that there used to be an outstanding Rider receiver named LaFrance, first name Chris, back in his day. Any relation?

Riders overpaid for him if figures from Dunk are correct

Your old man is thinking of Chris DeFrance.

Defrance and Joey Walters were my two favorite players back in the early 80's. They were a couple of the only reasons to cheer in those days. Both outstanding players.
