Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jason Krog
Center Jason Krog could be described as a late-bloomer. Twice he was cut from his Junior team growing up and even after being recruited by the University of New Hampshire, his abilities were questioned. But he possessed one skill that was never doubted, determination. After scoring 20 points as a first year player, Krog then posted 67 points as a sophomore. The following year he notched 66, then, as a Senior he exploded for 85 points in 41 games. He also led his team all the way to the National Championship, a game he played the day after he received the Hobey Baker Award as the top collegiate player in the country. Krog's club lost in overtime to the University of Maine, but it didn't take away from the fantastic season he had.

Krog signed a deal with the New York Islanders as a free agent prior to the 1999-00 season. His first season in the organization saw him split his time between two different AHL clubs but also included a 17 game stint in New York. Krog was able to score two goals and six points in that time. The following year Krog was plagued by injuries, but in the time he was healthy, he showed that he was a capable scorer in the AHL. Krog's solid numbers in the minors earned him a nine game call-up to the Isles in which he assisted on three goals. In 2001-02, Krog again scored at a point-a-game pace in the AHL, but the vastly improved New Islanders now had a more difficult roster to crack. Krog spent two games with them, but was unable to score. In the spring, however, he improved his stock by delivering an eye-opening performance during the playoffs for the Islanders farm club in Bridgeport. Krog scored 10 goals and 23 points while leading the club all the way to the Calder Cup Finals.

Impressed with what they saw from Krog while in Bridgeport, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks signed him as a free agent in the summer of 2002. Upon his arrival with the club he went on to play a career high 67 games and was a key player in the club's drive to 2003 Stanley Cup final.

Krog would spend much of the next two seasons plying his trade in Europe. Making stops in Switzerland, Austria and Sweden before returning to North America in the summer of 2006 when he signed with the Atlanta Thrashers.

On July 6, 2009, Krog was signed by the Vancouver Canucks, though he would spend most of his time with the club's AHL affiliate in Manitoba, where he put up impressive offensive numbers.
