Kolanos was selected in the first round, 19th overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes from Boston College. In college, he scored the game-winning goal in overtime for Boston College in the National Championship.
Kolanos' career has been limited by a serious concussion after Václav Varaďa hit him from behind and knocked him unconscious in a game on January 19, 2002. Varada received a major penalty and game misconduct as a result of his actions.
Perhaps the most memorable moment in Kolanos' NHL career occurred during his rookie season on March 31, 2002 when, despite lingering post-concussion symptoms, he scored a penalty shot goal against all-star Patrick Roy, after which the now Hall of Famer reacted emotionally and was assessed a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct.
Kolanos reported to the 2007 Calgary Flames' training camp. On September 19, 2007, Kolanos was assigned to the Calgary Flames' AHL affiliate, the Quad City Flames; however he did not report to the team. He later signed with Quad City in November for the 2007-08 season.
On July 11, 2008, Kolanos signed a one-year contract with the Minnesota Wild. Kolanos was assigned to the Houston Aeros to start the 2008-09 season. Kolanos was recalled multiple times by the Wild as an injury replacement, Krys was recalled for a month in January and played in 21 games adding 6 points, before returning for the Aeros playoff run.
He last played on Jan. 16, 2010. An examination prompted by pain in his hip revealed a degenetarive condition that required surgery.
Kolanos was out for 21 months. He made his debut for the Abbotsford Heat on October 28, 2011. Later that season, he was called up to the Flames and made his debut on February 3, 2012.
