After making his NHL debut on October 24, Miromanov received the extension after making 11 appearances with the NHL club in 2021-22, recording one point on one assist that came on October 26 against the Colorado Avalanche.
The right-handed defenseman had a strong season with the Henderson Silver Knights in his first complete season on American soil after making the transition from the KHL after the 2020-21 season.
In 53 games, he tallied 40 points with 11 goals in multiple stints in the AHL. Miromanov led the Silver Knights’ skaters in assists with his mark of 29 while also heading the blue-line group in points.
