The Calgary Stampeders have picked up a receiver who should be eager to make an impact in the Battle of Alberta.

Canadian Chris Bauman, the first pick of the 2007 entry draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, has signed on with the Stamps.

Baumanís siblings announcing the deal on their Twitter accounts Wednesday.

Bauman had one season with the Eskimos where he caught 11 passes for 132 yards in seven games.

The Eskimos made a huge splash in free-agency last season by bringing in Bauman from the Ticats, where he had 1,508 yards on 114 catches and six touchdowns over four seasons.

The 27-year-old Regina Rams product grew up in Brandon, Man., and adds to great Canadian receiver depth for the Stampeders, who already boast Johnny Forzani, Jabari Arthur and Anthony Parker as homegrown pass-catchers.
