Philadelphia Flyers Begin Extension Talks with Defenseman

While speaking with the media, Philadelphia Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher said that the team has begun extension talks with Travis Sanheim and their primary goal is to get him re-signed.

Sanheim is entering his final season and will have the opportunity to become a UFA next summer. Naturally, with the Flyers expected to be near the bottom of the NHL standings in 2022-23, speculation has already begun about the 6-foot-3 defenseman potentially being traded by the deadline. Yet, if Fletcher has his way, Sanheim will be a part of the team past this campaign.

Selected 17th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Sanheim has played in 335 career games as a Flyer, where he has 29 goals, 87 assists, and 116 points.
