Hear that Burke?
You need a tough guy and Mirasty needs a job in the NHL. Give the guy a shot!
Of course, Mirasty at 5'10 (maybe) 220 lbs does not have the frame of a classic heavyweight, but size has never been a prerequisite to determine who can compete on the heavyweight circuit. In past Rink Rants we have discussed smaller heavyweight contenders like Domi, Hordichuk and Stock, Mirasty is cut from the same cloth as these guys. At 25, he is relatively young and he still has some time to mature and learn and will someday be NHL enforcer material.
