The Ducks recalled goaltender Justin Pogge from ECHL Bakersfield this morning, with Jean-Sebastien Giguere apparently still bothered by the strained groin that forced him off the ice late Saturday.
Pogge appeared in four contests with the Condors this season, posting a 2-1-0 record with a 2.10 goals-against average and .923 save percentage. The 23-year-old could be especially motivated to face tonight’s opponent, the Toronto Maple Leafs, who gave up on Pogge by trading him to the Ducks for a conditional draft pick. Toronto drafted Pogge 90th overall, in the fourth round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
Giguere is listed as “day to day.”
