Mironov began his hockey career with five seasons playing for HC CSKA Moscow. Selected in the second round of the 1992 NHL Entry Draft 27th overall, by the Winnipeg Jets, Mironov only played 65 games for the Jets in his rookie season before he was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers as part of a package that allowed Winnipeg to obtain fellow defenceman Dave Manson. Despite a dip in his performance immediately after the trade, Mironov's play was good enough to be named to the NHL All-Rookie Team. Mironov spent parts of six seasons as a top-two defenseman with the Oilers before being dealt to the Chicago Blackhawks. During his time in Edmonton, the fans and media often referred to him as BoBo.
After being dealt to Chicago, Mironov's play tailed off. Despite a good first season with the team, his offensive production got less and less with each season. In 2003, he was traded to the New York Rangers where things did not improve much, eventually retiring after the 2003-04 season.
Mironov came out of retirement in 2006, suiting for Russian side Vityaz Chekhov. He played one season with the team before retiring for good in 2007.
Mironov is a two-time Olympian for the Russian national ice hockey team. He won a silver medal in 1998 in Nagano, Japan where he played with his brother Dmitri. He also won a bronze medal in 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
