Pogge is AHL player of the week.

Justin Pogge wasted no time getting to work in the American Hockey League last week.

Returned to the San Antonio Rampage after goaltender Vesa Toskala arrived in Anaheim, Pogge made three consecutive starts over the weekend and won them all, stopping 97 of 100 shots. On Monday, he was named AHL player of the week for the week ending Sunday.

Pogge began the week with a 27-save performance in San Antonio’s 3-1 win at Peoria on Friday night. In a rematch with the Rivermen on Saturday, Pogge made 43 saves on 44 shots to lead the Rampage to a 2-1 victory. And on Sunday, Pogge turned aside 27 shots as San Antonio edged Milwaukee 2-1.
