Ivan Provorov's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman of NHL.com (Apr.20th): "The Russian-born defenseman had an outstanding first North American season, leading all Western Hockey League rookies in scoring and finishing fourth among WHL defensemen."

Mike Morreale of NHL.com (Apr.20th): "The 6-foot, 201-pound left-shot defender was fourth among Western Hockey League defensemen with 61 points (15 goals, 46 assists) in 60 games as a rookie and his strong play has continued in the playoffs with two goals and eight points in 10 games to help Brandon reach the WHL conference finals. The Russian logs a lot of ice time, is good on special teams and likes to be a physical presence."

Steve Kournianos of The Draft Analyst: "Provorov is an outstanding two-way defenseman known more for his ability to nip scoring chances in the bud at an elite level. Hes a very good skater who can change the pace of a game; smooth, deceptively quick and very good at changing gears to catch opponents flat footed. Hes listed at 60, but at 200 pounds, he maintains a low center of gravity which makes him very difficult to establish position on. Provorov also uses a very long stick which helps him execute timely poke checks. Couple his reach with his elite positioning, and you have one of the best amateur defensemen at limiting opposing puck handlers with time and space. He is able to play his man close enough to allow him to blanket the puck carrier, even if they stop on a dime and reverse the direction of the puck."

Curtis Joe of EliteProspects: An offensively gifted defenceman who can direct the game's pace when the puck is on his stick. Provorov is a quick and agile skater with an accurate release on his shot, which he can get off anywhere below the blue line; creates many chances on the power play and can even create offense during the penalty kill. Is an adroit and creative passer who knows how to use his teammates well. All-in-all, a complete defenceman who knows how goals are scored and executes accordingly.
