Travis Sanheim of the Calgary Hitmen (WHL) has been drafted 1st round – 17th overall by the Philadelphia FLyers in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

From Elkorn, Manitoba, Sanheim has come off of a remarkable year earning a place on the Calgary Hitmen from the Midget AAA Yellowhead Chiefs where he became one of their best defensemen.  The 18-year-old was ranked the 187th skater by NHL’s Central Scouting before shooting up to a final ranking of 53rd.

He then helped Canada win a bronze medal at the 2014 IIHF World Under-18 Championships in Finland earning six assists in the tournament. He also competed on Team West at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. Earlier this week, he was invited to Hockey Canada’s National Junior team development camp.
