Colorado Avalanche Prospect Andrei Mironov Ready for North America

Colorado Avalanche Prospect Andrei Mironov is Ready for North American Pro Hockey After Signing Entry Level Deal.

After much success in the Russian Leagues, Andrei Mironov is ready to join the Colorado Avalanche’s San Antonio Rampage of the AHL next season. Mironov who set career highs in 2015-16 with Dynamo Moskva of the KHL with 13 points (3 goals, 10 assists) in 40 games saw a regression in 2016-17 with only four points in 18 games. However, Mironov appeared nine playoff games putting up three assists.

In 2012-13, Mironov also won a KHL Championship with Dynamo. After playing in 196 career KHL games, Mironov put up 12 goals, and 28 assists for 40 points with 93 penalty minutes and a career plus two rating. The former fourth-round pick in the 2015 Entry Draft, Mironov shows a lot of promise and could be in the NHL lineup sometime in the next few years. And at 6’2″ and 200 pounds, it’s not hard to see why. He’s defensively sound with very few issues in his game.

But besides his KHL Championship Mironov has also done well Internationally with Russia earning a World Junior Championship U-20 Bronze Medal in 2012-13, another U-20 World Junior Championship Bronze Medal in 2013-14. Also a World Championship Silver Medal in 2014-15 and a World Championship Bronze Medal in 2016-17.

So he has quite the accolades under his belt already and at 22 that’s quite impressive. And since Colorado is in the rebuilding phase and unlikely to see the playoffs in the next couple of years he could very well participate in the Worlds once again. Also, let’s not forget he was also in the KHL All-Star game in 2014-15.
