Ivan Vladimirovich Provorov (Russian: Иван Владимирович Проворов; born January 13th 1997) is a Russian professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).[1]

Playing careerEdit

Provorov played with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders in the United States Hockey League before he was selected in the CHL Import Draft 30th overall by the Brandon Wheat Kings.[2] He opted to report to the Wheat Kings for the 2014–15 season on 14 August 2014.[3]

After being rated as a top prospect, he was selected seventh overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft by the Flyers.[4] Provorov signed an entry-level contract with the Flyers on 3 July 2015.[5]

Provorov won the WHL championship with the Brandon Wheat Kings in the 2015–16 season[6] and was named WHL defenceman of the year.[7] However, in the following 2016 Memorial Cup tournament the team failed to win a game. Provorov was also named the CHL Defenceman of the Year for the 2015–16 season.

After a good showing at the Flyers training camp the next season, he was added to the team[1] and made his NHL debut on October 14th 2016 in Los Angeles against the Los Angeles Kings. He recorded his first NHL point, an assist, in the same game. Provorov scored his first NHL goal on November 23rd against Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
