Brent Krahn enjoyed a very successful junior hockey career with the WHL's Calgary Hitmen before being drafted in the first round by Calgary in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. A highly regarded prospect at the time, he was the second goaltender selected in the draft, after Rick DiPietro, who was selected first overall. He subsequently spent time in the American Hockey League with the San Antonio Rampage, Lowell Lock Monsters, Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights, and the Quad City Flames. A recurring knee injury seriously hampered his development at the professional level, and Krahn is now widely regarded as a draft bust.
Following the 2007-2008 NHL season and after 8 years of development in the Flames organization, the team made the decision to not re-sign Krahn, and he became an unrestricted free agent. He was signed by the Dallas Stars on September 24, 2008. Beginning the season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves, Krahn was recalled by the Stars in February 2009, and made his NHL debut on February 14 in relief of starter Marty Turco against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Krahn played for the Texas Stars of the AHL from 2009 until 2011. After the 2010-2011 regular season it was announced that he had been left off the Stars' Clear-Day roster and was therefore ineligible for the AHL playoffs.
He currently works at Pembina Pipelines.
