The Vegas Golden Knights announced on Monday afternoon that they have re-assigned defenseman Daniil Miromanov to the American Hockey League (AHL).
Miromanov, 25, was re-signed by the Golden Knights this offseason to a two-year, $1.525 million deal with an average annual value of $762,500. While viewed as a depth defenseman at this point, many thought he may be able to stick with the club for the 2022-23 season after a successful 2021-22 campaign which came mostly in the AHL. That said, offseason surgery forced him to sit out all of training camp, which ruined any chance he made of sticking around for the time being.
In 53 games last season with the Henderson Silver Knights, the Russian blue liner recorded an impressive 11 goals and 40 points. He was also able to suit up for the first 11 NHL games of his career, in which he logged one assist.
Despite being sent down, it won’t at all be surprising to see Miromanov back in a Golden Knights sweater in short time. He is undoubtedly one of the teams first call-up options, and is very versatile in that he has proven he can play both up front and on the back end, though he is used much more as a defenseman.
