Philadelphia Flyers Sign Provorov: One Down, One To Go

Today, the Philadelphia Flyers signed defenseman Ivan Provorov to a six-year, $6,750,000 AAV contract. That’s a great deal for both Philly and the 22-year-old defenseman. The stipulations of the deal are not 100% confirmed by the Flyers yet but according to Pierre LeBrun there is “$12 M in signing bonus money”.

I recently talked about the Flyers and resigning both Provorov and the young Travis Konecny. The team is halfway there.

Now that Philly has Provorov locked up they can move on to re-signing Team Pest Travis Konecny. The 22-year-old centre had an AAV of $1,106,667 during his last 3 seasons so fitting him under the $6,667,421 Cap Space that Philly has left. As long as Konecny stays reasonable, I see the Flyers getting this deal done quickly.

The team has had a pretty rough go recently. Last season the team had a rotating door of goalies. The Flyers had 8 goaltenders throughout the 82 game stretch, On top of that, they missed out on playoffs and haven’t made it past the First Round since 2012. This will be a big year for all of the young stars to step up and bring Philadelphia back into the spotlight.
