Actually, it was Dr. Ken Nielsen (Dentist). He was an oustanding Canadian receiver for Winnipeg from 1965 to 1970, one of those players whose career was perhaps just a bit too short to earn him Hall of Fame consideration. Actually, Nielsen started his career in Hamilton in 1965, but played just 2 games for the Tiger-Cats before moving to Winnipeg. Nielsen had just 14 catches in limited action in his rookie season, but became a regular in 1966 with 44 catches for 719 yards. Nielsen had his first of two thousand yard receiving seasons in 1967 with 76 catches and 1121 yards to finish second in tghe West in receiving behind Terry Evanshen. For his efforts, Nielsen was named a West All-Star in 1967 Nielsen followed that up in 1968 with 68 catches for 1031 yards to lead the West in receiving. Besides winning both West and All-Canadian honours, Nielsen was also named the Outstanding Canadian in the CFL for 1968. NIelsen missed a couple games due to injuries in 1969, but still had 49 catches in 14 games and earned his third Western and second All-Canadian All-Star status.. In his final season, injuries limited him to just 7 games and 29 catches.
Nielson had one fumble recovery in 1966 which was probably an OFR, but the CFL did not distinguish between deffensive fumble recoveries and OFR in 1966.
