Matt Kirk Named Week's Top Canadian

Another week, another Player of the Week award for a Tiger-Cat. This week, it's Matt Kirk who gets the honour of being named the Canadian of the Week.

Kirk, who was thrust into the starting lineup when injuries forced some Defensive Linemen to miss Friday's game, recorded two sacks and three tackles in Hamilton's 39-38 win over Winnipeg.

Kirk is the second Tiger-Cat to win Top Canadian (Dave Stala has already won the award twice this season), and he becomes the fifth different Tiger-Cat to win a Player of the Week award. Kirk joins Kevin Glenn (Offensive, Week 3), Arland Bruce (Offensive, Week 5), Dave Stala (Canadian, Week 3 and Week 6) and Marcus Thigpen (Special Teams, Week 1).

Kirk is a high-effort player who never seems to give up on a play. It's hard not to like a guy like Matt Kirk. It's good to see a guy like Kirk come in, have an impact and get rewarded for it. Hopefully he can keep it up for the remainder of the season.
