Provost won the first ever Bill Masterton Trophy awarded for perseverance in 1969.
In the fall of 1970 the Canadiens offered Provost a job as an assistant playing-coach with their farm team the Montreal Voyageurs. Provost accepted and actually led a Voyaguers' practice and was scheduled to play in a game. But at the last minute he changed his mind and retired. A groin injury suffered in training camp was one of the reasons for his change of mind.
He retired in 1970.
He suffered a fatal heart attack while playing tennis at his home in Florida in 1984.
