A former goaltender in the Maple Leafs organization has made an important announcement regarding the rest of his career.

Former Leafs Goaltender Announces Retirement



Pogge was drafted in the third round by the Leafs in 2004. After an impressive performance at the World Juniors in 2006, many people believed he would be the future goalie for Toronto. However, following seven seasons in the AHL, he decided to continue his career in Europe.

Pogge Turns to Coaching

Now that his playing career is over, Pogge can embark on his coaching career. He is using his experience to coach younger goalies. Despite playing only seven NHL games, his 20-year career as a goalie has equipped him with the necessary tools to educate others.

"I've been around the game for a long time and I feel like I can pass some of my knowledge along. It's been nice to get thrown in and get my experience this way."


In fact, he started to coach at the 2022 Olympics. He was serving as fourth netminder of the team, but felt he'd be more useful as a coach.

His former trainee, Devon Levi, holds fond memories of him:

"I remember we didn't have a goalie coach. And he stepped up and that was really cool for him to want to mentor us. That he was willing to do that instead of playing was really great."

We wish him the best of luck and success in his new role!
