CFL NOTEBOOK

Longtime long-snapper Randy Chevrier has retired a Calgary Stampeder.

The 41-year-old from Montreal played the majority of his 16-year professional football career with the Stampeders from 2005 to 2015.

Chevrier concluded his career with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2016.

He won Grey Cups in 2008 and 2014 with Calgary and was also a member of the Edmonton Eskimos championship team in 2003.

Chevrier also appeared in a combined 13 games for the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys.

"To every teammate I've ever played with, I hope you felt that I treated you like a brother,'' Chevrier said in a statement released Tuesday by the Stampeders.

"I have had the opportunity to play for three proud CFL franchises each with their own unique and rich history. Thanks to the Eskimos, Stampeders and Roughriders for giving a kid from Montreal a lifetime of memories right here in the wild west.''

Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray and slotback S.J. Green and Montreal defensive back Jonathon Mincy have been named the top performers for Week 1 of the CFL season.

Ray completed 32 passes for 506 yards and a touchdown in the Argonauts 32-15 win over the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday. Ray eclipsed 55,000 career passing yards in the game, becoming the fourth quarterback in CFL history to do so.

Green, signed by Toronto in the off-season, showed immediate chemistry with Ray, collecting 125 receiving yards on seven receptions.

Mincy registered five defensive tackles, one interception and two knockdowns in the Alouettes' 17-16 defeat of Saskatchewan in Thursday's season opener.
