Ivan Vladimirovich Provorov (Russian: Иван Владимирович Проворов; born 13 January 1997) is a Russian professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).
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. He opted to report to the Wheat Kings for the 2014–15 season on 14 August 2014.
Provorov won the WHL championship with the Brandon Wheat Kings in the 2015–16 season and was named WHL defenceman of the year. 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 and made his NHL debut on 14 October 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 23 November 2016 against Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning. At the end of the 2016–17 season, the Flyers awarded Provorov with the Barry Ashbee Trophy, which is given to the team's "outstanding defenseman" from the season. Provorov became only the third rookie defensemen to win the award for the Flyers, after Norm Barnes and teammate Shayne Gostisbehere (who had become the 2nd just the year before).
In Game 6 of the first round of the 2018 playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Provorov played with a Grade 3 AC Separation. This injury normally requires an 8 week healing process, however Provorov showed his tenacity and played through the pain to try to keep the Flyers' season alive. Provorov and the Flyers would fall to the Penguins 8-5 in Game 6, and ultimately lose the series 4-2.
