June 2022 – The Vegas Golden Knights have signed Miromanov to a 2-year, $1.525M extension with an AAV of $762,500. The Russian finished out the 2021-22 season with 40 points (11G, 29A) in 53 games for the Henderson Silver Knights of the AHL, and registered a single point (an assist) in 11 games played with the Vegas Golden Knights. Miromanov has a short way to go before he’s fully ready to crack Vegas’ roster full-time: he should definitely be on Golden Knights fan’s must-watch list going into training camp and the preseason in a few months. This extension likely signals ‘do-or-die’ time for him to prove himself further in the AHL and perhaps even another minor stint in the NHL if he’s able to impress at training camp and throughout the preseason.

February 2022 – Following solid performances as a scoring winger in the QMJHL and one campaign in the ECHL, Miromanov returned to his native Russia to hone his game in the VHL and KHL as a scoring-first defenseman before signing a one-year, entry-level contract with Vegas in early 2021. While his defensive game currently has holes, there is no denying the speed and offensive skill he possesses: he currently sits second in total points (6G, 23A) on Vegas’ AHL affiliate in Henderson. He’s also earned two NHL call-ups this season, skating in seven games and registering an assist. Approaching 25 years-of-age, Miromanov will need to quickly patch up his defensive game in order to earn big-time NHL minutes, but he does have promise as a potential second-pairing blueliner and power play specialist.
