Leafs call up goalie Justin Pogge ahead of Monday game against Atlanta

ATLANTA - Goalie Justin Pogge could finally get his first shot at the NHL.

The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled Pogge on Sunday from the AHL's Toronto Marlies ahead of 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 was Toronto's first choice, 90th overall, in the 2004 NHL draft and he has appeared in 111 career AHL games.

The Leafs first called him up on Jan. 11, 2008, but Pogge didn't see any game action and was reassigned back to the Marlies the next day.
