Flyers sign Sanheim to entry-level deal

Despite returning to his junior club, the Calgary Hitmen, as part of the club's first wave of roster cuts on Wednesday, Travis Sanheim will continue his junior career knowing that he's a member of the Flyers organization.

On Thursday, Philly announced that Sanheim, a first-round pick in June's draft, was inked to an entry-level contract.

Sanheim appeared in one preseason game, skating in 18:08 of action while collecting one shot on goal in 23 shifts, in Monday's 5-4 win over the Washington Capitals in Philadelphia.

The 18-year-old Manitoba native totaled five goals and 24 assists in 67 games for the Hitmen last season.
