SUNRISE, Fla. _The Flyers got the player they wanted.

They selected defenseman Ivan Provorov with the No. 7 overall pick in Friday's draft at the BB&T Center.


The Flyers moved up five spots in the first round of the NHL draft, swapping the No. 29 and No. 61 picks to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for the No. 24 pick.

And with that pick, the Flyers selected Travis Konecny, a forward from the Ottawa 67s of the OHL.
