2020-21: Blue Bombers
Kolankowski first signed with the Blue Bombers in February of 2020, but had to wait to make his debut with the club following the cancellation of the CFL’s 2020 season due to the pandemic. Kolankowski was added to the club’s practice roster after training camp in 2021 before making his Blue Bombers debut on November 6th in Montreal against the Alouettes.
Kolankowski dressed for two regular-season games in 2021 and then was on the roster for the 108th Grey Cup victory in Hamilton.
He signed a two-year contract extension to remain with the club on January 12, 2022.
