Stars sign G Krahn to 2-way contract, make offers to 9 restricted free agents

Publish date:

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have signed goalie Brent Krahn to a two-way contract for next season.

Krahn played 22 games for the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League this season, winning 17 games with five shutouts and a 1.83 goals-against average. Krahn's two-way contract allows for different salaries, depending on if he plays in the NHL or the AHL.

Dallas also extended qualifying offers Tuesday to nine restricted free agents—left wingers James Neal and Fabian Brunnstrom; defencemen Matt Niskanen, Maxime Fortunus, Nicklas Grossman and Trevor Ludwig; centres Aaron Gagnon and Perttu Lindgren; and right-winger Raymond Sawada.

The Stars are eligible for compensation if any of those players sign with another team.

The Stars declined to give a qualifying offer to forward Tyler Shelast, making him eligible to be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
