[Trade] Prefontaine to Toronto


Recommended Posts



The Toronto Argonauts have reacquired punter/place kicker Noel Prefontaine from the Edmonton Eskimos, sources told sportsnet.ca.

Prefontaine played for the Argos from 1998 to 2007 before being traded to Edmonton in 2008.

The Eskimos will receive backup Canadian defensive lineman Etienne Legare and import linebacker Damaso Munoz.

The Argos need a punter because Jamie Boreham suffered a serious hamstring injury in the Argos' victory over Saskatchewan on Saturday and is sidelined indefinitely. The Argos used place kicker Jason Medlock, an import, after Boreham's injury, but want to go with a proven Canadian. Rookie Grant Shaw has struggled this year, but is still on the roster.

The Eskimos have a backup punter/kicker in Canadian Derek Schiavone, who is in his third year but has played sparingly behind Prefontaine. He has a career total of 13 successful field goal in 14 tries and has punted 12 times for an average of 39.3 yards.The deal is the first for new Eskimo general manager Eric Tillman.
