Before Cory Hathaway arrives in Calgary for Stampeders training camp, he has a more important event in Edmonton.

The newly-signed Stamps fullback will tie the knot April 28 with high school sweetheart Stephanie and then turn his attention back to football.

"It's been a busy off-season," said the 23-year-old, who agreed to a two year-deal, plus an option.

"I'm pretty excited. I've been looking forward to playing there for a long time. I was hoping to play in Calgary when I first came into the league.

"This is a really good opportunity for me. Me and my fiancee are extremely happy. This is a good fit for us."

Hathaway reunites with Stampeders offensive co-ordinator George Cortez, who was in Saskatchewan as offensive line coach last season.

The 6-ft. 4-in., 240-lb. Canadian gives the Stamps a solid blocker who can also catch the ball as a tight end and carry the ball on short yardage.

Hathaway was a second-round pick by the Ottawa Renegades in 2005 and played that season in the nation's capital. He was taken by Saskatchewan in the dispersal draft and caught four balls for 76 yards and a TD last season.

EXTRA POINTS:

The Argos have signed former NFL QB Mike McMahon. McMahon last played with the Eagles in 2005. Toronto also added former Colts backup QB Tom Arth ... The Alouettes have hired Charlie Carpenter as their offensive line coach ... The Blue Bombers cut former Stamps DB Omar Evans and DT Cameron Legault.
