RALEIGH, NC – Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has signed goaltender Justin Pogge (POH-gee) to a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Pogge $500,000 on the NHL level or $85,000 on the American Hockey League level, with a guarantee of at least $105,000.

Pogge, 24, split the 2009-10 season between the AHL and ECHL, posting a 13-7-5 record with a 2.55 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage in 27 AHL games with San Antonio and Albany.

In 169 career AHL games with Toronto, San Antonio and Albany, Pogge has earned a record of 84-63-16, with a 2.68 goals-against average.

Acquired by the Hurricanes on March 3, 2010, along with a fourth-round draft pick in exchange for Aaron Ward, Pogge played in seven NHL games with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2008-09, and has a career NHL record of 1-4-1 with a 4.35 goals-against average. Pogge (6’3”, 200 lbs.) played his junior hockey in the Western Hockey League (WHL), where he was the WHL Player of the Year and the Canadian Major Junior Goaltender of the Year in 2006, after posting a 38-10-6 record with a 1.72 goals-against average and 11 shutouts for the Calgary Hitmen.
