Flyers Rumors: Travis Sanheim Linked To Western Conference Team In Trade Talks

There have been recent reports indicating that the Philadelphia Flyers and the Winnipeg Jets are actively discussing a potential trade involving defenseman Travis Sanheim.

According to sources like David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, Anthony SanFilippo, and Anthony Di Marco, the Flyers are exploring various options for Sanheim, and the Jets have emerged as one of the teams they have engaged in talks with.

While the specifics of the potential trade are unclear, one factor to consider is the Jets' possession of the 18th overall pick in the upcoming NHL draft.

The Jets may be hesitant to part ways with such a valuable asset in exchange for Sanheim, but the situation remains fluid, and there is a possibility that the Jets could make additional moves before finalizing any trade involving Sanheim.

However, the Jets' interest in Sanheim suggests that they may have broader plans beyond just resolving the Pierre-Luc Dubois situation.

If the trade were to materialize, it would likely result in the Jets having an excess of left-shot defensemen, which could prompt further adjustments to their roster.

Last season, the 27-year-old, who hails from Elkhorn, Manitoba, scored seven goals and 23 points across 81 games played. Photo Credit:  Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports
