Default chugger pump to keg

Hi, I kegged a red ale tonight, but when I was sanitizing my siphon, I broke it... so I used my chugger pump to transfer the beer from the carboy to the keg... my question is there is any risk of oxidation by using the pump?

Yes, I'm guessing there is a real risk of oxidation. As long as there was no air in the head and the pump wasn't cavitating, you're probably fine. Was it all clean and sanitized?

Yes, it was, I ran starsan for a few minutes before transfering the beer, also I sealed the pump with the beer (trying to make sure there was no air) before turning it on, well I guees that I'll have to wait a few days to see what happens
