How will Zach Werenski’s signing Monday affect restricted free agent Ivan Provorov?

Well, the Flyers hope it will speed up the negotiating process.

“We’re getting to a point where we need to see some progress if they’re going to be here Friday on the ice,” general manager Chuck Fletcher said on Tuesday, referring to Provorov and Travis Konecny, another restricted free agent.

The Flyers open their main training camp Friday.

Werenski, a defenseman like Provorov, signed a three-year bridge deal with Columbus, inking a $15 million contract that has an average annual cap hit of $5 million.
