Ivan's top moments from the 2018-19 season

  • 01:10 •

Since breaking into the NHL back in 2016-17, it's been impossible to imagine the Flyers defensive core without Ivan Provorov. At the young age of only 22, Provorov has never missed a game since debuting, appearing in 246 consecutive regular season contests. Despite a tough start to the season and a career low in points (7g-19a-26pts), the left-hand shooting defenseman continued the maturation process in his third NHL season. Provorov earned more responsibility in his third season, seeing a significant increase in his ice time. In 2018-19, Provorov averaged the most TOI per game (25:07), a career-high, racking up 2,059 total minutes, and led the Flyers in both statistical categories.

Provorov, a restricted free agent this offseason has the possibility of representing Russia in the 2019 IIHF World Championships, pending the timing of a contract extension with the Flyers. During Break Up Day this year, Provorov was very direct regarding his intentions to continue his NHL career in Philly.

Tweet from @NHLFlyers: Provorov on 2019 Break Up Day regarding his contract situation: "I love everything here. I love the guys. I love the organization. I love Philadelphia. It's not going to be a problem."
