Kraus played major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Vancouver Giants and Regina Pats. In 2005–06, his third year with the Giants, Kraus scored a junior career-high 21 goals and helped the Giants to the franchise's first President's Cup championship. The following year, he recorded a junior career-high 47 assists and 66 points, while the Giants finished as 2007 WHL champion runners-up, then captured the 2007 Memorial Cup championship as tournament hosts. The next year, he was traded to the Regina Pats, where he finished his major junior career.
In the 2011–12 season on November 18, 2011, the Wichita Thunder traded Kraus to the Dayton Gems in exchange for future considerations. He made only one appearance for the Gems before his season was cut short due to injury.
On September 7, 2012, Kraus decided to remain in the CHL, signing to a one-year contract with the inaugural Denver Cutthroats. Kraus was subsequently released from the Cutthroats prior to the season after failing to cement a place on the opening night roster. Krause subsequently signed his first foreign contract, agreeing to a one-year deal, with British club Dundee Stars of the EIHL on October 24, 2012.
