Flyers’ Ivan Provorov skips warmups over refusal to wear Pride Night jersey

By Joseph Staszewski January 17, 2023

Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov did not participate in warmups before the team’s home game against the Ducks on Tuesday night because he refused to wear a Pride Night jersey and use sticks wrapped in rainbow Pride tape.

The stick of Owen Tippett of the Philadelphia Flyers is seen before a game against the Anaheim Ducks at Wells Fargo Center.

“I respect everybody. I respect everybody’s choices,” Provorov told reporters after the game, declining to get into any further detail. “My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion.”

The Flyers released a statement on the matter but did not mention Provorov by name.
