Justin Pogge

The Good: For such a tall goalie, Pogge moves very well in his crease and handles the puck well. He uses his size to his advantage, cutting down the angle very well. He is rarely caught out of position because of his power, which is a credit to his conditioning. His rebound control and reflexes both are above-average. “Poggo” enjoyed a stellar junior career, and has the ability to come up with big saves in crucial situations at lower levels.

The Bad: Once one of the most highly prized goaltending prospects, Pogge’s production has not matched the potential he showed during his days in junior, when his composure and confidence were two of his biggest strengths. In fairness to him, he has yet to be in a stable situation with a solid structure to allow him to develop, but don’t expect him to make a career as an NHL goalie. Two downsides are his skating and balance, and they aren’t even that bad. He does tend to lose focus and must improve his concentration skills.
