Stephan, 21, has played the past three seasons with the Kloten Flyers of the Swiss National League. In 2004-05, he posted a 19-20-5 mark with a 2.82 goals-against-average and four shutouts. The 6-2, 180-pound goaltender collected a career-best goals-against-average of 2.33 in 2003-04 with Kloten to go with a 14-11-1 record and five shutouts. During the 2001 U-18 World Championships, Stephan captured the Best Goaltender award as he represented Switzerland. Dallas' second round pick (34th overall) in the 2002 Entry Draft, he also played for Switzerland at the 2002 U-18 Worlds and the 2002 and 2003 World Junior Championships.
