Maver played in 18 games and punted 123 times for 5,588 yards (45.4 avg., 88 longest) and eight singles. He also had three special-teams tackles. He also played in the Western Final and punted nine times for 402 yards (44.7 avg, 55 longest, 373 net). He was the Stampeders nominee for the Most Outstanding Special Team Player.


Maver played in all 18 games and punted 124 times for 5,661 yards (45.7 avg., longest 62) and seven singles. On Aug. 17 vs BC he threw a 22-yard pass to Rob Cote on a fake punt. He was named CFL's special teams player of the week for his performace on Sept. 13 which included a successful fake punt when he threw the ball to Matt Walter for 31 yards and averaged 48.8 yards on five punts, including a perfectly executed coffin-corner kick that resulted in Hamilton starting a drive at its own one-yard line. Maver was named CFL's special teams player of the week a second time when he averaged 49.0 yards on five punts — including boots of 57 and 55 yards — and had a net punting average of 45.6 yards on the night and one of his punts forced the Lions to start a drive on their own three-yard line in Week 16. In the Western Final Maver punted five times for 231 yards (avg: 46.2, longest 55). He was named a West all-star, a CFL all-star and a CFLPA all-star.


Hughes played 16 games and registered 39 tackles including three tackles for a loss, a league-leading 18 sacks, an interception, three knockdowns and tied for a team-high three forced fumbles. He recorded six multiple-sack games. He was on the injured list for Games 4 and 5. He earned CFL defensive player of the week for his perfomance in Week 1 when he had three QB sacks and four tackles and again in Week 10 for his three-sack game on Labour Day. In Week 18 he won the CFL's top defensive player of the week for a third time with his three-sack effort against Saskatchewan. Hughes also started in the Western Final and recroded four tackles. He was named a West Division all-star, a CFL all-star and a CFLPA all-star and was the West nominee for the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player.


Maver’s season was limited to one game — the season-opener — because of a quad muscle injury. He aggravated the injury during the July 1 contest against Toronto and as a result was able to convert just one of four field-goal attempts. He was one-for-one on extra points. He spent the remainder of the season on the injury list.


In his rookie season, Maver played in every game, including the West final, and won the CFL scoring title with 185 points. That total was also good enough to establish a new points record for Stampeders rookies. He converted 37 of 47 field goals, was perfect on 70 extra-point attempts and added four single points. He made his CFL debut in the July 1 season-opener against Toronto and booted five field goals. In his second game, his 23-yard field goal with 10 seconds remaining gave the Stamps a 23-22 victory over Hamilton. He kicked for 10 or more points in 11 regular-season games including a season high of 18 on July 1. After going 15-for-16 on field goals in his first six games, he hit a mid-season slump but rebounded to split the uprights on 17 of his final 19 field-goal tries. Maver led the CFL with 6,510 yards on 110 kickoffs, an average of 59.2 yards per boot. He was good on both of his field-goal attempts in the West final.


In 2009, Maver connected on 13 of 14 field goal attempts for a 92.9 per cent success rate. He punted 66 times for 2,723 yards and an Ontario University Athletics-leading average of 41.3 yards per punt. Maver kicked 57 field goals during his university career and is the Gryphons' all-time leader in scoring with 290 points. In 2008, he was named all-Canadian first team punter after posting a 46.1-yard average and he was second-team all-Canadian kicker thanks to 18 field goals and 83 points. He was an OUA all-star as both a kicker and a punter that season.
