Elks WR Manny Arceneaux Chasing History in 2023

There are reasons for everyone to be excited by the return of Manny Arceneaux, who the Edmonton Elks recently re-signed to a one-year contract.

His play on the field. His leadership in the locker room. His contributions in the community.

And, if you’re a fan of the Green and Gold, getting to witness the pursuit of history.

Arceneaux enters the 2023 season as the CFL’s active leader in receptions (617), receiving yards (8,931) and touchdown catches (59), and is poised to make a rapid ascent up the all-time leader list, overtaking some of the greatest players in league history, Canadian Football Hall of Fame and EE Wall of Honour members among them:


Arceneaux is currently 24th all-time  

  • Five receptions from 23rd (Jermaine Copeland, 622)
  • 10 receptions from 21st (Jock Climie, 627)
  • 33 receptions from 17th (Tommy-Joe Coffey, 650)
  • 65 receptions from 16th (Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons, 682)
  • 75 receptions from 15th (Adarius Bowman, 692)

Receiving Yards

Arceneaux is currently 30th all-time

  • 105 yards from 29th (James Murphy, 9,036)
  • 317 yards from 28th (Jim Young, 9,248)
  • 560 yards from 26th (Adarius Bowman, 9,491)
  • 806 yards from 23rd (Jim Sandusky, 9,737)
  • 901 yards from 20th (Tony Gabriel, 9,832)

Receiving Touchdowns

Arceneaux is currently 32nd all-time

  • one touchdown from 31st (Jeff Fairholm, 59)
  • three touchdowns from 27th (James Murphy, 61)
  • five touchdowns from 25th (Tommy Joe Coffey, 63)
  • eight touchdowns from 21st (Darren Flutie, 66)
  • 15 touchdowns from 15th (Terry Vaughn, 73)

“To be able to climb up the lists and add to my legacy is a blessing,” says Arceneaux. “The day that I’m no longer wearing those cleats it would be great to be talked about as a guy that played to the potential of being on the Wall of Honour and in the Hall of Fame.”
