Brent Krahn, starting goaltender for the Texas Stars last year, was put on waivers today by the Dallas Stars. The waiver wire placement indicates that Andrew Raycroft won the backup job behind Kari Lehtonen in Big D. Both Krahn and Raycroft signed two-way contracts with hopes of making the backup spot. Raycroft, who has played for Boston, Toronto, Colorado and Vancouver, is a veteran backup in the league after losing his one-time starting job in Boston to one Tim Thomas (who later lost his starting job to Tuukka Rask).
Krahn cannot clear waivers until 11 AM Friday. His earliest possible action would be Saturday against Oklahoma City.
