Flyers prospect Ivan Provorov has been named the Western Hockey League defenseman of the year.
The 19-year-old, who was the Flyers’ top pick (seventh overall) in 2015, led all WHL defensemen with 73 points (21 goals, 52 assists) in 62 games. He also led the league in plus-minus with a plus-64.
And he really came on strong toward the end of the regular season. In the final 10 games of the year, he had eight goals and 18 points.
