Standing Tall: Philadelphia Flyers Player Ivan Provorov Doesn’t Bow To The LGBTQ Cultists, Refuses To Wear ‘Pride Night’ Jersey

New York Post

(New York Post) 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.

Provorov, who said he is Russian Orthodox, cited his religious beliefs as why he chose not to partake in the warm-ups.



“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.

“The Philadelphia Flyers organization is committed to inclusivity and is proud to support the local LGBTQ+ community,” the statement said. “Many of our players are active in their support of local LGBTQ+ organizations, and we were proud to host our annual Pride Night again this year. The Flyers will continue to be strong advocates for inclusivity and the LGBTQ+ community.”
