The Vegas Golden Knights have made few transactions this season, but one occurred on Thursday afternoon, as they recalled defenseman Daniil Miromanov from the Henderson Silver Knights of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Miromanov, 25, was re-signed by the Golden Knights this offseason to a two-year, $1.525 million extension which carries an average annual value of $762,500. Many believed he would be able to crack the opening night line up out of training camp, but that failed to happen as he was instead assigned to the Silver Knights.
To his credit, he didn’t sulk after being re-assigned, instead going on to record 13 points through his teams first 17 games of the season. The big numbers are nothing new for the Russian blue liner, who had 40 points in 53 outings with the Silver Knights a season prior.
Whether Miromanov will get to suit up during this recall remains to be seen. He is viewed as insurance at this point while the team waits for the return of Alex Pietrangelo, who is currently away for personal reasons. Whenever he is set to return, Daniil Miromanov will likely be re-assigned once again. That said, the fact he was the first to be called up on the back end bodes well for himself to get an opportunity at some point down the line this season.
