TORONTO (AP) -Goalie Justin Pogge, the Toronto Maple Leafs' first pick in the 2004 NHL draft, could finally play in the NHL after 111 career AHL games.
The Maple Leafs recalled Pogge on Sunday from the Toronto Marlies before Monday's game against the Atlanta Thrashers.
In 22 games with the Marlies this season, Pogge is 10-9-3 with a 2.86 goals-against average and an .890 save percentage.
The 22-year-old Pogge was the 90th pick in the 2004 draft. The Leafs first called him up in January, but Pogge didn't see any game action and was reassigned back to the Marlies the next day.
