Calgary selected Forzani in the 2010 CFL supplemental draft and signed him on May 21, 2010.
Forzani began the season on the nine-game injury list following off-season surgery. He was moved to the one-game injury list before Game 10 and transferred back to the nine-game injury list prior to Game 18.
Forzani started 14 games and caught 29 passes for 512 yards and three touchdowns. His average of 17.1 yards per reception was tops on the team among with players with at least 20 catches. Forzani suffered an ankle injury on Oct. 13 against Winnipeg and missed the final three regular-season games and the playoffs. He had his longest touchdown reception of his CFL career on Sept. 28 against Edmonton when he hauled in a 44-yard pass from Kevin Glenn. He surpassed the 1,000-yard mark in career receiving with a 50-yard catch on Aug. 18 against Toronto.
Forzani made tremendous strides during his second season, dressing for all 18 regular-season games and making 17 starts at wide receiver. He also started the West Division semifinal against Edmonton. Forzani shared the team lead in touchdown catches with five, led the club with an average of 16.9 yards per catch, was third with 761 receiving yards and fourth with 45 receptions. He also contributed on special teams with two tackles, three punt returns for 24 yards and one kickoff return for eight yards. He twice was honoured as the CFL’s Canadian player of the week, both after big games against the Montreal Alouettes. The first came at McMahon Stadium on Aug. 27 as he made six catches for 101 yards and the first two touchdowns of his CFL career. Then, on Oct. 30 in Monteal, Forzani turned in a nearly identical effort with six catches for 108 yards and two majors. He was also named the CFL’s top Canadian for the month of August. Forzani had two catches for 25 yards in the West semifinal.
In his rookie season, Forzani played in six regular-season games. He made his professional debut in the Stampeders’ season-opener on July 1 against Toronto. His first catch came in his second contest, a July 10 contest in Hamilton. He finished the season with three receptions for 46 yards, including a 32-yard grab against Edmonton on Sept. 10. He also returned five kickoffs for 84 yards. An injury forced him to miss the season’s final five games and the West final.
Forzani played the 2009 season at Washington State University and made nine receptions for 265 yards and two touchdowns. On Oct. 10, Forzani made a 99-yard touchdown reception in a game against Arizona State to tie the NCAA record for the longest pass play.
Forzani starred for junior football Calgary Colts in 2008, leading the Prairie Football Conference with an average gain of 21.0 yards per reception. He was named the conference’s rookie of the year and was on the first all-star team. Forzani was a basketball standout for Calgary’s Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School and he also played basketball for Douglas College in New Westminster, B.C. His father, Tom, and uncles, John and Joe, played a combined 25 seasons for the Stampeders.
