Raycroft Leaves Stars For Italy

News: Andrew Raycroft will play for Italy's Milano Rossoblu this coming season, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The 32-year-old Andrew Raycroft -- the NHL's 2004 Calder Trophy winner -- went 2-8-0 with a 3.52 goals-against average and .858 save percentage in 10 games with the Stars this past season. We suppose that if he plays well overseas, he could resurface in the NHL at some point, but he's clearly at the journeyman stage of his career.

Stars' Raycroft Clears Waivers

News: Andrew Raycroft cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL Texas on Thursday, according to the Stars' official Twitter page.
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft went just 2-8-0 in 10 games with the Stars this season, but with 250 NHL starts under his belt, it's he could return to Dallas later this season or garner some consideration for a team looking for goalie help.

Stars' Raycroft To Be Waived

News: Andrew Raycroft will be placed on waivers, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Richard Bachman (5-2-0, 2.76 GAA) has wrested the backup goalie spot from Andrew Raycroft, who is expendable with the impending return of Kari Lehtonin.

Raycroft Takes Stars' Loss In Relief

News: Andrew Raycroft stopped 11 of 12 shots in relief of Richard Bachman during Monday's loss to St. Louis.
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft had not seen the ice lately with the strong play of Richard Bachman, but Raycroft had the unfortunate occurrence of allowing the winning goal to St. Louis. Look for Raycroft to pick up the odd start, but, with Bachman around, his starts won't be too many.

Stars' Raycroft Pulled In Loss

News: Andrew Raycroft gave up five goals on 25 shots through two periods before being removed from the game Thursday in San Jose.
Analysis: Rayzor has been less than sharp in his last two outings, giving up 10 goals combined. Richard Bachman replaced him and stopped 11 of 11.

Starts Roll With Raycroft Thursday

News: Andrew Raycroft will be in net when the Stars take on the Sharks Thursday, according to ESPN DAllas .
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft has been pressed into duty with the injury to Kari Lehtnon. In his last outing he permitted five goals in a loss against the Islanders, so he will be looking for redemption against a motivated Sharks club.

Raycroft Torched In Dallas' Home Loss

News: Andrew Raycroft's fine string of starts ended with a thud Saturday as the visiting Islanders hung five goals on him on just 27 shots (.815) to take a 5-4 win.
Analysis: The Stars really don't have an alternative to sending Andrew Raycroft out to mind the crease, with Kari Lehtonen out for the bulk of December. This nightmare isn't typical, but it might shake his confidence unless he can summon some hockey amnesia.

Stars' Raycroft To Face Isles Saturday

News: Andrew Raycroft will start Saturday against the Islanders, according to ESPN Dallas.
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft will continue to handle the bulk of the starting duties with Kari Lehtonen on the shelf with a sore groin. He has played very well thus far, winning two of three games with a 2.11 GAA and .944 save percentage over that span.

Stars' Raycroft Shines Again Thursday

News: Andrew Raycroft won his second straight start Thursday night, stopping 33 of 35 shots en route to a 3-2 win over Ottawa. It was his third straight start since taking over as the No. 1 in Dallas while Kari Lehtonen recovers from a groin problem.
Analysis: He's now 2-1 since Lehtonen went down and will get the bulk of the starts for the Stars over the next three weeks which is how long Lehtonen is expected to be out of action.

Stars Call On Raycroft Thursday

News: Andrew Raycroft will continue to sub for the injured Kari Lehtonen on Thursday, according to ESPN Dallas.
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft was strong last game allowing one goal on 36 shots, but don't let that fool you. He has a 3.08 GAA in six games plays and can't always be counted on. The Stars are slumping pretty bad, but at least he gets a decent match-up at home Thursday, though the Senators have been no pushover lately.

Stars' Raycroft Stops 35 In Win

News: Andrew Raycroft made 35 saves on 36 shots as he picked up a win against Colorado on Monday.
Analysis: With Kari Lehtonen out at least three weeks with a groin injury, Andrew Raycroft will likely see most of the starts in his stead. This is a great start, but Raycroft's career numbers don't inspire much confidence.

Raycroft In Net Monday For Stars

News: Andrew Raycroft will face the Avalanche on Monday night for the Stars, according to Mark Stepneski of Dallas ESPN.
Analysis: With Kari Lehtonen on the IR with a groin issue, Andrew Raycroft will be asked to step up in net. If his recent play is any indication of what to expect, the Stars would do well to avoid expecting too much as he's yet to emerge victorious in five starts.

Stars' Raycroft Facing Uptick In Time

News: Andrew Raycroft's teammate Kari Lehtonen was placed on IR with a groin injury Sunday, the Stars' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: Lehtonen may only miss a pair of games if he's able to recover quickly, but Andrew Raycroft figures to get at least two starts (he's already been tabbed for Monday's game against Colorado) while Richard Bachman has been recalled from Texas (AHL) to serve as the Stars' temporary No. 2 netminder.

Stars' Raycroft To Start Monday

News: Andrew Raycroft will receive a start in place of Kari Lehtonen on Monday, Mark Stepneski of ESPN Dallas reports.
Analysis: The start will be Andrew Raycroft's fifth of the season. He has defined backup quality in these starts, losing all four with an .894 save percentage and a 3.54 GAA.

Stars' Raycroft: 34 Saves In Loss

News: Andrew Raycroft made 34 saves in a 4-1 loss to San Jose on Saturday night.
Analysis: It was just his fourth start of the season and first at home. His value is restricted -- he's a handcuff for Kari Lehtonen and nothing more.

Rare Start Saturday For Stars' Raycroft

News: Andrew Raycroft is expected to start Saturday's game against San Jose, according to ESPN reporter Mark Stepneski.
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft will be looking to improve on his last start, Nov. 12 against the Red Wings, when he allowed five goals on 40 shots. For now, he remains nothing more than a backup option for regular starter Kari Lehtonen and doesn't merit much fantasy consideration.

Stars' Raycroft Gets Rare Start Saturday

News: Stars coach Glen Gulutzan has tabbed Andrew Raycroft as the starting goalie for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, according to ESPN reporter Mark Stepneski.
Analysis: Andrew Raycroft has appeared in just two games so far this season, posting an 0-2-0 record, 2.56 GAA and .907 save percentage. The team's regular starter, Kari Lehtonen (11-2-0, 2.20, .934), has come out of the gate very strongly this season, meaning Raycroft will not see much more than the odd game here and there in order to keep Lehtonen fresh. He's a decent play on those nights when he does get the starting nod, but make sure you have other netminders on your fantasy bench to help carry the load.

Raycroft Loses Heartbreaker As Stars Fall

News: Andrew Raycroft was superb in Saturday's contest at Los Angeles, stopping 23 of the 24 shots he saw. But it wasn't enough as the Kings pulled out a 1-0 squeaker.
Analysis: Second-star honors were probably cold comfort for him as Dallas lost for just the second time this season. The strong outing won't earn him the No. 1 goaltender's job -- that belongs to Kari Lehtonen -- but it will probably buy him a bit more crease time down the line when Lehtonen needs a breather.

Stars' Raycroft To Start In Goal Saturday

News: Andrew Raycroft will be given the start Saturday night against the Kings, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: It's just a routine night off for Kari Lehtonen so there's nothing to worry about. For fantasy purposes, Andrew Raycroft is nothing more than a handcuff here.

Stars' Raycroft Allows Four

News: Andrew Raycroft made 26 saves in a 5-2 loss to Chicago. He allowed four goals.
Analysis: Kari Lehtonen is the man in Dallas but Rayzor is good enough to draw 20 starts this season. Deploy him as a handcuff.

Dallas' Raycroft Gets Saturday Start

News: Andrew Raycroft is expected to get the start Saturday against Chicago, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Kari Lehtonen played Friday night and figures to get the start Monday against Phoenix as a result.

Stars' Raycroft Perfect Saturday

News: Andrew Raycroft blanked the Blues 4-0 on Saturday. He made 33 saves.
Analysis: He's entrenched as the back-up in Dallas and won't see regular action unless Kari Lehtonen gets hurt. That has been known to happen, though, so your best move is to handcuff Andrew Raycroft to the starter just in case. You don't need someone else poaching and holding him until you're truly desperate.

Stars' Raycroft Solid In Relief

News: Andrew Raycroft played the last half of Saturday's preseason win over St. Louis. He allowed two goals on 20 shots.
Analysis: Kari Lehtonen is the starter and will see the bulk of the work between the Stars' pipes this season ... unless he gets hurt. Andrew Raycroft is really just a handcuff for Lehtonen at this point.

Raycroft Yields Five Goals As Stars Falter

News: Vancouver's Roberto Luongo outdueled Raycroft on Saturday as the Canucks beat the Stars, 5-2. Raycroft allowed all five Vancouver goals and made 33 saves on the night.
Analysis: At this point in the campaign, he's a must-avoid. His last three starts have featured a seven-goal shellacking by the Flames; his getting yanked ignominiously after just 80 seconds against Boston, after yielding goals on the first two shots he saw; and now this five-goal waxing at the hands of the Canucks. His GAA over that stretch is 6.94.

Andrew Raycroft

Raycroft Gets Saturday Dallas Start

News: Raycroft will start against Vancouver on Saturday, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Although he allowed goals on the only two shots he saw in his last start, Raycroft has generally done a decent job this year, posting a GAA of 2.57 while producing an 8-4-0 record.
