Pogge The Ducks have recalled goalie Justin Pogge from Bakersfield of the ECHL after the team said Tuesday that Jean-Sebastien Giguere was questionable for tonight's game against Dallas because of an undisclosed injury.

Giguere left practice early on Tuesday because of the injury, which he described as "nothing too bad."

Pogge, 23, has appeared in two games with the Bakersfield Condors this season, recording a 1-0-0 record and a 0.75 goals-against average. He is 1-4-1 in seven career NHL appearances.

He likely will back up Jonas Hiller tonight.
