Goalie Ben Kraws has joined the Dallas Stars on a one-year, entry-level contract that will start in the 2024–25 season, the team announced on Monday. Jim Nill, president of hockey operations and general manager, made the announcement.

The 6-foot-5 goalie is ending an incredible career at St. Lawrence University, where he played a key role in the Skating Saints’ incredible run through the ECAC conference tournament before falling to Cornell in the championship game. Through 37 games, Kraws recorded a 14-17-6 record, two shutouts, a.919 save percentage, and a 2.49 goals-against average. Following a breakthrough season, Kraws was named a Hobey Baker candidate for the NCAA’s Top Collegiate Player award.

Kraws finished the previous season with a 3-0 record while serving as Arizona State’s backup for the second straight year. He had a 12-11-1 record in 27 starts the year prior. Kraus played for Miami University (Ohio) for two seasons before moving to Arizona State. The New Jersey native spent five years in the NCAA, playing for Miami, Arizona State, and St. Lawrence. In 89 regular season games, he recorded a 30-41-9 record, a.906 save percentage, and a 2.98 goals-against average.

Despite choosing to attend college, Kraus was selected in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection Draft by the Niagara Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Before moving on to play for the Sioux City Musketeers of the United States Hockey League (USHL), Kraus played a portion of two seasons with the Buffalo Jr. Sabres of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL). Kraus played 69 games for Sioux City, finishing with a 20-29-9 record, three shutouts, and a.895 save percentage.

Dallas has been busy signing NCAA free agents over the past several weeks; they have signed Ben Kraws, Justin Hryckowian, and Luke Krys. To finish the season, Kraws will probably sign an ATO with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Texas has played 62 games and earned 64 points, good for fourth place in the Central Division with a 29-27-4-2 record. There are ten games left in the Stars’ season.
