After leading the league in goals, assists, and points en route to capturing regular-season MVP honors, Krog currently shows an AHL-high 19 assists and 28 points in 18 Calder Cup Playoff games.
The Wolves will open the 2008 Calder Cup Finals at home on Thursday against the Eastern Conference champion Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
The 32-year-old Krog totaled 39 goals, 73 assists, and 112 points while skating in all 80 of Chicago’s regular-season contests. He became just the third player in AHL history to lead the league in all three major offensive categories in the same season.
Krog, who racked up a 14-game scoring streak from Dec. 8 to Jan. 12, was named a First-Team AHL All-Star at center and earned the Les Cunningham Award as most valuable player.
A native of Fernie, B.C., Krog is preparing to make his second appearance in the AHL’s championship series. He reached the Calder Cup Finals in 2002 with Bridgeport and posted four points (2-2-4) in a five-game loss to the team for whom he now toils, Chicago.
The next year, he played in the Stanley Cup Finals as a member of the runner-up Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Krog is currently in his ninth professional season following a standout collegiate career at the University of New Hampshire, which he capped off by winning the 1999 Hobey Baker Award.
