Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman first reported the deal.
The 25-year-old Sanheim was a restricted free agent this offseason and coming off of a two-year, $6.5 million bridge contract. Earlier this month, the Flyers filed for salary arbitration in negotiations with Sanheim. The hearing date was scheduled for this upcoming Thursday, the last day for arbitration hearings.
Despite a challenging 2020-21 season, Sanheim is an important piece to the Flyers' present and future on the back end. Sanheim was a first-round pick in 2014 and has the ability to play in all situations. Before last season, he had made positives strides in consecutive years as more was put on his plate.
