The Maple Leafs sign Fraser Minten

The Flyers extend Travis Sanheim

Philadelphia Flyers: The Flyers have signed defenseman Travis Sanheim to an eight-year, $50 million contract extension – an AAV of $6.25 million.

“We’re extremely happy to have Travis under long-term contract and see him as a key piece of our team’s future,” said Fletcher. “Travis has improved each season to become a highly reliable player and key contributor on our blueline. Furthermore, he is someone who has developed his entire career with us and has grown into a valuable leader for our team.”

Charlie O’Connor: “Sanheim is a good player! He’s long been far better than his vocal haters on this hellsite believe him to be. But $6.25 mil is a lot for an eight-year contract, especially when you just signed Risto @ $5.1 for five and still have Provorov for $6.75 mil for two more after this one”
