Sanheim notched an assist in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Islanders in Game 4. Sanheim has racked up three helpers in his last five games. The 24-year-old blueliner has six points (one goal, five assists), 29 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 13 contests. He's adjusted well to a top-pairing role, which has included chipping in on offense with some regularity.
Sanheim registered an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens in Game 6. Sanheim set up Michael Raffl for the game-winning and series-clinching goal at 4:26 of the second period. The 24-year-old Sanheim had two assists in six games during the series, and he's managed a goal and three helpers in nine outings overall. The blueliner has added 12 shots on goal, 22 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in the playoffs. He's skated more than 20 minutes in each of his last five games -- Sanheim is seeing an increased role in the Flyers' defense corps.
Sanheim registered an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 1. Sanheim set up Joel Farabee for what would be the game-winning goal at 14:54 of the second period. In four postseason games, Sanheim has a goal, two helpers, a plus-6 rating, eight shots and 13 blocked shots. He's playing a key role on the second pairing for the Flyers, although the blueliner had only 25 points in 69 regular-season contests, so his scoring pace could be expected to dip as the playoffs go on.
Sanheim had eight goals and 25 points in 69 games prior to the NHL suspending the season in March because of the coronavirus. The 24-year-old heated up prior to the stoppage, tallying one goal and nine points with a plus-6 rating in 14 games. He won't match his 35 points from last season, but Sanheim could realistically score two more goals in the final 13 games to post 10 goals for the first time in his career. He also has a plus-4 rating, 32 PIM and 110 shots on net in 69 games this season.
Sanheim picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Rangers. It was a good day to be on the special teams units for either club -- of the eight goals scored between them, six came on the power play and one was a shortie. Sanheim is on a bit of a heater by his standards, scoring one goal and seven points in the last 10 games, and on the season the 23-year-old is up to 23 points (eight goals, 15 helpers) through 65 contests.
