DALLAS - The Dallas Stars assigned backup goalie Tobias Stephan to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League on Friday.
The Stars want to give the Swiss goalie more playing time after he started only three of their first 50 games. Marty Turco started his 48th game of the season Friday night against the New York Rangers.
Dallas called up Brent Krahn from Chicago of the AHL to serve as Turco's backup on Friday night.
Krahn has never played in an NHL game.
