In need of another Canadian receiver, the Eskimos have added to their roster.

With Pat Woodcock on the shelf for another month with a knee injury, the Sun has learned the Eskimos have signed slotback Mike Lindstrom.

The club has not made the move official. But expect a formal announcement soon.

The UBC product spent the entire 2006 season on the B.C. Lions practice roster.

At 6-2 and 210-pounds, the 26-year-old averaged a smashing 104 yards receiving per game in 2005 for UBC.

The fifth round pick in the 2006 CFL draft clearly has a history with offensive co-ordinator Jacques Chapdelaine, who spent last year with B.C.

On a bye week, the Eskimos return to action on Labour Day in Calgary.
