The Golden Knights have made a pair of roster moves in advance of their game tonight against Dallas, announcing (Twitter link) that goaltender Michael Hutchinson and defenseman Daniil Miromanov have been assigned to Henderson of the AHL.
Hutchinson was on recall with both Logan Thompson and Adin Hill dealing with injuries. While Thompson is on injured reserve, this move suggests that Hill will be available to dress tonight against the Stars. Hutchinson didn’t play for Vegas on this recall and hasn’t suited up much overall. He has only made seven appearances with the Silver Knights, posting a 2.74 GAA along with a .897 SV%. He also played twice for Canada at the Spengler Cup back in December. With Laurent Brossoit still up covering for Thompson’s injury, however, Hutchinson should be in line for more playing time in the short term.
As for Miromanov, he had been on injured reserve dating back to February 20th so this move indicates that he has been cleared to return. The 25-year-old had actually been up with the Golden Knights since the end of November but still has seen more action with Henderson than Vegas this season. In 17 games with the Silver Knights, Miromanov has 13 points while he picked up two goals and four helpers in 14 contests with Vegas. It’s quite possible that he’ll be back up before long but having been out since the end of December, he needs to get some playing time under his belt first.
