Thomas Dietmar Pöck (born December 2, 1981, in Klagenfurt, Austria) is a defenceman for Rapperswil-Jona Lakers of the Swiss NLA. He previously played in the National Hockey League with the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Pöck was a star forward turned defenceman at the American college University of Massachusetts Amherst. Pöck was never drafted in the NHL, but signed his first pro contract on March 23, 2004 with the New York Rangers.
Pöck played eight games for the New York Rangers in the 2005–06 NHL season, scoring one goal, getting one assist, and accumulating four penalty minutes. During the 2006–07 NHL season, Pöck played in 44 games for the Rangers, scored four goals, collected four assists, and was assessed 16 penalty minutes. He also played in four first-round playoff games, amassing three assists.
After only playing in one game with the Rangers to start the 2007–08 season, Pöck was sent down passing waivers, to play with the American Hockey League's Hartford Wolf Pack due to the Rangers having seven other healthy defencemen on the roster.
On September 29, 2008, Pöck was claimed on waivers by the Rangers' arch rivals, the New York Islanders. Pöck joined the Islanders for training camp and played a career high 59 games with the Islanders in the 2008–09 season.
On May 28, 2009, Pöck signed with Swiss team Rapperswil-Jona Lakers of the NLA on a two-year contract.
