Travis Sanheim extends AHL point streak to eight games

This may not come as much of a surprise, but young Philadelphia Flyers’ blueliner Travis Sanheim has been excelling in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms since his demotion.

Sanheim recorded two assists for the second consecutive game Wednesday evening against the Utica Comets, extending his point streak to eight games.

Sanheim’s point streak is the longest by any Phantoms player this season.

Lehigh Valley prevailed with a 5-4 victory and currently remain atop the Atlantic Division standings, possessing the second-most points in the entire league (75).

It’s clear the Flyers want Sanheim to round out his game and improve overall, but he’s making it hard for anybody to ignore him.

If he continues this strong play, the 21-year-old rearguard could find himself up with the big club sooner rather than later.
