"After a very successful weekend with back-to-back wins over the New Jersey Devils and Washington Capitals, the Philadelphia Flyers made a roster move on Monday.
Indeed, they have reassigned defenseman Travis Sanheim to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League and recalled Mark Alt to take his place on the roster.
This move should not come as a surprise to anyone. Sanheim has been a healthy scratch for nine of the last 10 games and only played for just over six minutes on the game that he draw in.
Sanheim has played in 35 total games this season, scoring one goal while added four assists. He has a -10 goal differential with an impressive 54.2 CF% while averaging 15:14 of ice time.
However, it has become clear that he has lost the confidence of head coach Dave Hakstol. Sitting in the press box in Philadelphia will not do the 21-year-old much good, so some playing time with the Phantoms will be better for Sanheim at this point.
What do you think of this move?
