Ivan Provorov
22-Year-Old DefensemanD
2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Failing to produce
DPhiladelphia Flyers
January 10, 2019
Provorov recorded a shot on net, one hit and three blocks in a 2-1 victory over the Stars on Thursday.
The 21-year-old is apparently experiencing his sophomore slump a year late. Through 44 games in his third season, Provorov has only four goals and 13 points with a minus-17 rating. A season after Provorov posted 17 goals and 41 points with a plus-17 rating as a 20-year-old, these 2018-19 numbers are extremely disappointing. Provorov is only producing in the hits and blocks categories, and even in those areas, he's behind his pace from a season ago.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
