Ivan Provorov
24-Year-Old DefensemanD
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Provorov has become a workhorse for the Flyers. The 23-year-old blueliner averaged around 25 minutes of ice time for the second straight season in 2019-20, and finished 17th in Norris Trophy voting. He did everything for the Flyers last year -- scoring goals, quarterbacking the power play, blocking shots, delivering hits -- and vaulted himself into near-elite status as a multi-category fantasy unicorn on defense. There will be even more even-strength minutes available for Provorov in 2020-21 following the unexpected retirement of Matt Niskanen, and that will offset any special-teams ice time he might lose to Shayne Gostisbehere, Erik Gustafsson or Travis Sanheim. Provorov finished 26th in points, 25th in shots and 8th in ice time among defensemen last year -- numbers he could easily improve on during the upcoming campaign. He'll be a rock-solid secondary fantasy option among defenseman this year. Read Past Outlooks

September 3, 2020
Provorov scored the game-winning goal and had an assist in Thursday's 5-4 double-overtime victory against the Islanders in Game 6. He also had four hits and two blocks with a plus-3 rating.
ANALYSIS
Provorov received a Kevin Hayes centering pass above the hash marks and roofed a wrist shot past New York goaltender Semyon Varlamov with 4:57 left in the second extra session. The 23-year-old was a workhorse for the Flyers, logging a game-high 38:15 of ice time, more than 10 minutes of which came on special teams. Provorov has three goals and five assists through 15 playoff games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Provorov followed up his breakout sophomore campaign with a disappointing third NHL season in 2018-19. In 82 games, the left-handed Russian recorded seven goals and 26 points while posting a minus-16 rating -- he had 17 goals and 41 points with a plus-17 rating in the same number of games in 2017-18. Owners should have expected some regression in scoring after he submitted an 8.4 shooting percentage in 2017-18, but Provorov also had 58 fewer shots on goal last year. The good news is he did start getting more shots on net following the All-Star break, but it didn't result in more scoring. Still only 22, Provorov is a candidate for a bounceback season in 2019-20, but owners shouldn't expect him to reach his 2017-18 totals. Somewhere around 10 goals and 30-to-35 points is a more realistic projection for the 2015 first-round pick.
The Russian defenseman took another big step forward in his development during his sophomore campaign. Playing in all 82 games for a second straight season, Provorov scored 17 goals and 41 points while posting a plus-17 rating (an improvement of 24). His shooting percentage jumped nearly five percent, but his shots, shot attempts and minutes also increased, indicating his improvement wasn't all pure luck. While Shayne Gostisbehere is viewed by many as the Flyers No. 1 defenseman, and for good reason, Provorov actually played nearly three more minutes per game than “Ghost” and was utilized more often at even strength. Gostisbehere gobbling up all the minutes on the power play somewhat limits Provorov's fantasy ceiling, but the 21-year-old is still and up-and-coming commodity that any owner should target in the middle rounds.
Provorov was expected to impress once he reached the NHL, and he didn't disappoint, instantly stepping into a major role that saw him average almost 22 minutes of ice time and play in all 82 games -- a gig that resulted in 30 points, most of which came at even strength. His power-play production probably won't see a spike with the Flyers’ second unit again looking like it may tend toward mediocrity, but the 2015 draft’s No. 7 overall pick is already a well-rounded NHL defenseman. He dishes out hits, he blocks shots, he takes shots, and he makes smart passes -- what more can you ask for in a 20-year-old? it'll be huge for his team if the Russian blueliner can take a step forward in 2017-18, as the Flyers need their youngsters to come into their own if they want to reverse last season’s struggles, and the smart money’s on Provorov to come through.
Already a highly regarded prospect after a point-per-game debut in the WHL two years ago, which caused the Flyers to use the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft on him, Provorov came into last season with great expectations – and exceeded them. He bettered the previous season’s marks with 21 goals and 73 points, finishing tied for third on the Brandon Wheat Kings in the latter category, and his plus-64 rating led the entire circuit (although, to be fair, the top five players on the list were all Wheat Kings). He enters the new season looking for a job in the NHL as the Flyers continue bringing along their new generation of high-upside blueliners – Shayne Gostisbehere, Provorov and Samuel Morin. Obviously, the talent is all there, but it’s asking a lot for the 19-year-old Provorov to deliver anything resembling the sort of instant offensive impact we saw from Gostisbehere last year.
