(December 19, 2005) -- John Ferguson, vice-president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Monday evening that the club has signed junior goaltender Justin Pogge (pronounced PO-ge) to a multi-year, entry level contract.

Pogge, 19, was the Toronto Maple Leafs' first choice, 90th overall, in the 2004 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Pogge was selected to Canada's junior national team that will participate in the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championships in Vancouver British Columbia this month.

Playing with the Calgary Hitmen, Pogge is currently leading the Western Hockey League goaltenders in wins (22-tie), save percentage (.928), goals-against average (1.53) and shutouts (6) in 2005-06.
