Flyers 2020-21 Season in Review: Travis Sanheim

The Philadelphia Flyers experienced a tumultuous 2020-21 season, leaving a long list of questions for general manager Chuck Fletcher to address this offseason. Perhaps the most disheartening problem with the team this season was the regression of younger players who were expected to be entering the prime years of their respective careers. And the play of 25-year-old defenseman Travis Sanheim was an underlying example.

Travis Sanheim makes me feel good

It feels weird to talk about what the Philadelphia Flyers are as a team on the ice right now. While the team is certainly not secure with their talent and performances as of late, they are currently on lockdown as five players—and that number might just end up being different in 24 hours—are on the NHL’s COVID protocol list, as the league keeps on postponing upcoming games in hopes for a safer environment.

Optimizing the Flyers’ defense without Travis Sanheim

The Flyers won their game against the Capitals yesterday and maybe we can say that the game was fun. It depends on your definition of fun, I guess. It was pretty wide open and there was a whole lot of scoring, which was fun. But that also means that there were certainly stretches where the Flyers’ defense, well, sort of forgot what defense even looked like, which was decidedly less fun for us to watch (and probably even less fun for Carter Hart to live out).

Flyers' Travis Sanheim: Sitting out Sunday

Sanheim (undisclosed) won't be available for Sunday's game against Washington, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The specifics of the absence remain unclear, but the absence is a bit concerning, especially considering Sanheim took the ice for practice Saturday. The 24-year-old has been having a solid start to the season, recording five points across 12 games to this point. In his stead, Philippe Myers (upper body) will return from a one-game absence to draw back into the lineup.

Sanheim recorded two assists and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins. Sanheim had a hand in the Flyers' first two goals of the game, as he recorded primary helpers on tallies from Kevin Hayes and Jakub Voracek. The 24-year-old Sanheim has been steady on the blue line with five points, 15 hits, 10 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 11 appearances.
