Cedar Park, TX – The Dallas Stars announced on Friday that goalie Brent Krahn has been assigned to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ AHL Affiliate.

Krahn returns to Texas where he posted his best pro season in 2009-10. The Texas goalie went 17-4-0 with a stingy 1.83 goals against average and a .945 save percentage. The Stars netminder finished third overall in the American Hockey League with five shutouts on the season. The Calgary, AB native also set one of the longest winning streaks in the AHL by a goalie in 2009-10, taking ten straight decisions from early October into late November. He was also named the RBK / AHL Goalie of the Month last November after allowing just seven goals on 210 shots in six appearances. For the month, Krahn went 5-1-0-0 with a 1.16 goals-against average, a .967 save percentage and two shutouts.

The eighth-year pro is 102-78-17 all-time with a 2.52 goals against average, a .915 save percentage and 18 career shutouts. The Calgary Flames drafted Krahn ninth overall in the first round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.

By adding Krahn, the Texas Stars now have three goalies, ten defensemen and 18 forwards for a total of 31 total players on the Training Camp Roster.

Texas hosts a pair of preseason games this weekend at Cedar Park Center. Saturday, the Stars host the Oklahoma City Barons at 7:00 pm. On Sunday, Texas will host the Houston Aeros at 5:00 pm.
