|Career highlights and awards|
Crapigna was drafted in the fifth round, 40th overall, in the 2014 CFL Draft by the Calgary Stampeders. Following training camp, he returned for a fifth season with McMaster. He re-signed with the Stampeders on February 18, 2015, but spent most of the 2015 season on the team's practice roster.
On October 14, 2015, just prior to the trade deadline, Crapigna was traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders along with a third-round draft pick in the 2016 CFL Draft for Jerome Messam and a fifth-round pick in that draft. He played in his first professional game on October 24, 2019 against the Edmonton Eskimos and was successful on his only field goal attempt in that game. In the following season, he became the team's primary placekicker and made 36 field goals out of 42 attempts. He kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal on July 22, 2016 against the Ottawa Redblacks. In 2017, he had the exact same field goal success rate, connecting on 36 of 42 attempts. He missed the entire 2018 season with an injury and was replaced by Brett Lauther. With Lauther having a very strong year, Crapigna was released by the Roughriders on May 7, 2019. Over the three seasons he played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Crapigna converted 76 out of 88 field goal attempts (86.4%).
Shortly after his release from Saskatchewan, Crapigna signed with the Toronto Argonauts on May 18, 2019. He attended training camp with the Argonauts in 2019, was part of the final cuts, and later signed a practice roster agreement with the Montreal Alouettes. He re-signed with the Argonauts on July 8, 2019 after the incumbent kicker, Drew Brown, was performing poorly. In 13 regular season games, he was successful on 22 field goals out of 27 attempts for a success rate of 81.5%.
