Allocate reference river depth using the euclidean allocation function

Hi all,
What I have is a DEM and a synthetic stream network I derived using the ArcHydroTools. The problem I am facing at the moment is decifering an algorithm I only have a powerpoint presentation of.
One step is to allocate each pixel of the DEM to its reference river depth. Somehow, this doesn't work. According to the powerpoint, I need to use the stream definition layer, but the output is all 1s as the only value for the defined stream is 1. I am a bit stuck with this and would appreciate any idea on how I could resolve my problem.
