New Flyers GM Ron Hextall pulled one from out of left field in making a first-round selection for the Orange and Black.
All eyes were on a trio of talented forwards: Kasperi Kapanen, Alex Tuch and Adrian Kempe. The Flyers went with a defenseman and an unlikely one at that.
The selection at 17th overall was 6'3", 181-pound blue-liner Travis Sanheim of the Calgary Hitmen in the WHL. Here is more on the Flyers first-round pick.
