Dynamo Moscow defender Andrey Mironov talked about the lack of Russian players in the National Hockey League (NHL) best rankings.
“But in terms of the goalkeeper position, the Russians are in perfect order – ours are in the first roles. Attackers are great too. We’re not going to catch all of the top 10 in the NHL. So now is such a period. Probably all the best defenders in the KHL game, ”Mironov said “Pair TV”.
Recall that the best of the Russians in the ranking of NHL defenders was Tampa Bay Lightning player Mikhail Sergachev. He took the 31st place. Cale Makar from Colorado was recognized as the best.
Andrey Mironov also has experience playing in the NHL. He played for the Colorado Avalanche from 2017 to 2018. He played 10 games in the NHL and got 3 points (1 + 2) on the “+2” usefulness indicator. After the end of the season, the defender returned to Russia and again became a Dynamo player, where he played from 2012 to 2017.
Last season, he played 48 games (one point) in the regular season of the Continental Hockey League (2 + 8) and 11 in the playoffs.
