Travis Sanheim Inching Closer to Reaching NHL Dream

VOORHEES — In a week where no players were evaluated by their on-ice performance, one thing was clear even if it was irrelevant: Travis Sanheim was the best of the bunch.

In his fourth development camp with the Flyers, who selected him in the first round of the 2014 draft, Sanheim probably won’t have to do the whole hockey-in-July bit again.

The 21-year-old didn’t complain, of course. In the sense of the NHL he has no experience and his last season puts him right on the cusp of making the highest level.

“I think there’s definitely a chance for me,” the 6-foot-4 defenseman said of the more important camp, which happens in two months. “I showed that I can play in the AHL and do well. I was relied upon to play a key role on the (Lehigh Valley) Phantoms. Going forward I think it’s something they wanted to see and I proved that. Hopefully I have a good camp in the fall and we’ll see what happens.”
