Brent Krahn Gets His Shot

from the Calgary Sun,

When the NHL held its entry draft at the Saddledome back in the summer of 2000, Brent Krahn’s dreams were all coming true.
With a huge crowd of Flames supporters on hand to roar their approval, Krahn was called to the podium by the host Calgary club with the ninth overall selection.
It seemed a matter of time before the then-Calgary Hitmen netminder was about to hear those cheers regularly.
Turns out, more like a matter of a long time….
As it stands now, the Flames brain trust appears willing to give one of the team’s prospects the chance to serve as backup goalie to star netminder Miikka Kiprusoff.
Likely, it’ll mean playing only about a dozen games through the season seeing as Kiprusoff is such a workhorse, so the job description also entails plenty of work in practice and morning skates and learning the trade at the next level.
