Justin Pogge, the talented goalie who has spent most of his pro career with the Toronto Marlies, has been traded to the Anaheim Ducks.
The story makes a good point that Anaheim already has Giguere and Hiller in net. So Pogge, now seemingly just a depth guy, could be AHL bound. Well, we all know what happened to the Chops, and San Antonio is already known to be the landing spot for several Ducks prospects in 2009-10.
If this guys ends up at the AT&T Center with Josh Tordjman, look out. That will be a very formidable tandem in net for the Silver and Black.
(UPDATE!) -- A quick look at the stats reveal that Pogge has never lost in regulation to the Aeros dating to the start of the 06-07 season. His first three starts against the boys were better than that last three, and the only time the Aeros beat him was in the shootout (at Toyota Center) just last year.
In 2006-07, he was 2-0-0 and allowed 4 goals on 62 shots (.935)
In 2007-08, he was 2-0-0 and allowed 4 goals on 65 shots (.938)
In 2008-09, he was 1-0-1 and allowed 6 goals on 44 shots (.864)
His best game was a 33-save shutout at Toronto on Feb. 10, 2008
His worst game was last Oct. 26 at Toronto when he allowed four Aeros goals on 23 shots.
I hope everyone finds this information useful.
