Flyers reportedly agree to terms with Ivan Provorov on six-year contract

Get ready for hockey season.

The Philadelphia Flyers reportedly have agreed to terms with one of their two remaining restricted free agents. Defenseman Ivan Provorov reportedly has agreed to terms with the Flyers on a six-year contract carrying a cap hit of $6.75 million.

Bob McKenzie first reported the news.



A six-year contract is great, but a lot of it depends on the cap hit.

And the cap hit is a good one for the Flyers.



Provorov signing his contract comes just days after Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski signed a bridge deal as an RFA. Werenski’s deal is worth just $5 million per year for three years. In comparison, Provorov’s contract looks pretty good.

Jacob Trouba also signed as a restricted free agent this summer, signing a seven-year deal with an $8 million AAV.

Chuck Fletcher now just has to re-sign RFA Travis Konecny and the Flyers will be ready to go for the 2019-20 season.
