Sanheim made the jump this season to the WHL and certainly showed signs of his potential, capitalizing on an increased role in the second half of the season. Showing more confidence, the rookie defender racked up 29 points in 67 games. One of Canada’s top performers at the U18 tournament, Sanheim continued to rocket up draft boards as the defender picked up six assists in only seven games.
A two way guy, Sanheim has shown above average puck moving ability to compliment his adept passing ability and good shot. He can get pucks up quickly and displays good vision in his own zone. Still somewhat raw defensively, Sanheim’s assent is well deserved.
