The Avalanche recalled Miska from AHL Colorado on Sunday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Miska signed an NHL contract last Monday to add organizational depth in the crease, but he's also been excellent in the AHL with a .919 save percentage and 13-5-3 record. Philipp Grubauer suffered a lower-body injury Saturday, so Miska will likely back up Pavel Francouz if Grubauer can't go Monday versus the Lightning.
Miska signed a two-way contract for the rest of the year with Colorado on Monday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.
The Avalanche are gearing up for a playoff run, so locking down Miska gives them depth in the crease going forward. The 24-year-old Miska has spent time in the ECHL and AHL this season, and he's performed admirably in the latter with a .925 save percentage and 11-4-2 record. He's still likely behind Adam Werner in the pecking order, making him the organization's No. 4 netminder.
Miska didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Coyotes on Tuesday, so he'll become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Arizona decided to qualify goaltender Adin Hill on Tuesday, making Miska the odd-man-out. The University of Minnesota-Duluth product will hope to land a two-way deal with a different organization once free agency kicks off.
Arizona reassigned Miska to AHL Tuscon on Friday.
The Coyotes snagged Calvin Pickard off waivers Friday, so they're no longer in need of Miska's services as a backup netminder. The 23-year-old American will return to his role as Tuscon's starter for the foreseeable future.
Miska will be recalled from AHL Tucson ahead of Tuesday night's road game against the Wild, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
The Coyotes aren't entirely sure that Antti Raanta (undisclosed) will be fit to start in the upcoming game, so Miska will be in St. Paul along with Adin Hill in case the No. 1 goalie ultimately isn't available.
Miska was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Friday.
Miska heading back to the minors suggests that Antti Raanta (lower body) will be activated from injured reserve ahead of a home clash with the Avalanche. The former made his NHL debut against the Red Wings on Nov. 13, stopping eight of nine shots in relief of No. 2 netminder Darcy Kuemper.
Miska made his NHL debut against the Red Wings on Tuesday, entering in the third period and picking up eight saves on nine shots in a 6-1 road loss.
Miska permitted defenseman Mike Green's first goal of the season, but the Wings had already put the puck past Darcy Kuemper fives times before Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet called on the rookie. Look for Miska to remain at the top level as long as Antti Raanta remains out of commission due to a lower-body injury. Of course, the 23-year-old from Minnesota has a 3-3-1 record, 3.11 GAA and .901 save percentage over seven games with AHL Tucson this season, so it's clear that he's not ready to be anything more than an emergency or mop-up goalie at hockey's highest level.
Miska was recalled by the Coyotes on Tuesday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Starting goaltender Antti Raanta "tweaked something" in practice, so Miska was brought in for precautionary reasons. If Raanta's injury keeps him out, Miska may have a chance to play during the upcoming back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday.
Miska allowed one goal on 10 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 split-squad home win over the Kings.
Miska replaced Antti Raanta after the Coyotes' traditional starter worked the first two periods. Both goalies were impressive in this one, but the undrafted Miska seemingly has a ways to go before reaching the top level. Besides, he just turned pro last year, sporting a 22-9-0 record, 2.63 GAA and .901 save percentage over 36 games for AHL Tucson.
Miska was reassigned to AHL Tuscon on Wednesday, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.
Antti Raanta (lower body), who was pegged as the team's No. 1 backstop coming into the season, will be lifted from injured reserve in a corresponding move. Miska didn't get a chance to make his NHL debut upon his latest call-up, as the 'Yotes have relied on newcomer Scott Wedgewood. However, now we at least have an idea of where Miska ranks within the organization.
Miska was called up to the NHL on Sunday, per the AHL transaction list.
The goaltending situation has been very fluid in the desert as of late, as starter Antti Raanta (lower body) remains sidelined. Miska hasn't had his best year in the minors posting a 4.02 GAA and .884 save percentage, but is still just a year removed from his sterling season at University of Minnesota-Duluth where he recorded a .920 save percentage in 39 games. With Louis Domingue and Adin Hill both reassigned, Miska could very well receive a start or two if Raanta remains out for much longer.
Miska was reassigned to AHL Tuscon on Friday.
After losing to Louis Domingue for the backup goaltender role behind Antti Raanta, Miska will begin his professional career in the AHL. Last season the 22-year-old recorded an excellent 2.20 GAA and .920 save percentage during his freshman season at University of Minnesota-Duluth, and certainly seems to have NHL potential. Miska is signed to an entry-level contract, and can be called up at any time.
