VANCOUVER - The British Columbia Lions announced Monday the re-signing of linebacker Anton McKenzie.

"Having Anton re-sign is another important step in keeping the core of our team intact moving forward," said Lions general manager Wally Buono. "This is great news for our fans and we'll continue the process of assembling the best possible club for 2012."

McKenzie, who played college ball at UMass, signed with the Lions prior to the 2009 season after three years with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He posted 79 tackles for B.C. last season, good for second on the team, and tacked on two sacks.
