Coralville, Iowa –Forward Yuki Miura has agreed to a contract with the Iowa Heartlanders for the 2022-23 season.

In his rookie professional campaign, he accumulated 22 points (10g-12a) in 41 games with Iowa. He frequently played on the Heartlanders penalty kill and became known as a two-way threat. Following the conclusion of Iowa’s season, Miura competed internationally for Japan in the World Championship Division 1B dishing out three assists in four games.

Miura’s rookie season story featured two notable “comebacks.” First, Miura’s professional debut was deferred for a month by immigration delays. Upon returning, Miura posted six goals in his first 10 games. Next, at the end of December 2021, Miura crashed into the end wall in a game against Tulsa and suffered lacerations to his liver and kidney. Originally feared to be a season-ending injury, Miura rehabbed and returned after six weeks. His first game back, coincidentally, was against Tulsa on Feb. 16 and Miura scored the game’s opening goal.

Prior to turning pro, Miura skated four seasons at Lake Superior State from 2017-21 and led the NCAA in blocked shots over that span. Over 100 collegiate games, Miura tallied 29 points (8g-21a). Prior to his NCAA career, Miura skated for the USHL’s Waterloo Black Hawks.
