The 22-year-old Miska has registered a 3-0-0 record with a 4.02 goals against average and an .884 save percentage in four games with the Roadrunners this season.

The Coyotes got their first win of the season tonight defeating the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 in overtime. Goaltender Scott Wedgwood, who was picked up off a trade from the New Jersey Devils, earned the win in net.

Miska helped lead the University of Minnesota Duluth to the Frozen Four Championship game last year and was named a finalist for the Mike Richter award, which is given annually to the goaltender voted to be the most outstanding in Division I NCAA hockey.
