Flyers loan Travis Sanheim to Phantoms
Things continue to get changed up for the Philadelphia Flyers. After a weekend sweep of the Devils and Capitals, Ron Hextall has decided to send down defenseman Travis Sanheim to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Sanheim, who has spent the majority of the team’s recent games as a healthy scratch, should be playing and sending him down shows that. However, it doesn’t condone the fact that Sanheim had been a very good defenseman alongside Radko Gudas.
Dave Hakstol, however, has decided that Brandon Manning gives them the best chance to win. The Flyers recalled Mark Alt from the Phantoms. Alt was with the Flyers for a few stints this season and could likely serve as a healthy scratch when they return to the ice this week.
