The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Travis Sanheim to a two-year, $6.5 million contract


Sanheim was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1. He had nine goals and 35 points in 82 contests while averaging 19:34 minutes last season.

The contract extension is worth an average annual value (AAV) of $3.25 million, according to Executive Vice President & General Manager Chuck Fletcher.

“We are very pleased with the progress Travis has made in his young career,” said Fletcher. “He is a skilled, two-way defenseman with excellent size and mobility. He is a big part of our present and our future.”

SANHEIM: “I’m obviously really excited. It’s a big step in my career. I’m looking forward to another two years with the Flyers. I’m really excited with the way the team’s moving forward and the moves we’ve made this summer.”
