The Flyers system features a "Big Five" group of prospects on the blue line. One of those players is having a tremendous rookie season in the NHL. Two others have been a part of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in the AHL all season. Two others were continuing to build their resumes in junior hockey.
With junior hockey seasons starting to come to a close, new opportunities can open for those players. For 2014 first-round pick Travis Sanheim, the time has come.
Sanheim will join the Phantoms on an amatuer try-out, now that the Calgary Hitmen have been eliminated from the WHL Playoffs.
