The Minnesota Wild's Kevin Fiala and Philadelphia Flyers' Travis Sanheim are headed to salary arbitration, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Neither Fiala nor Sanheim were among the restricted free agents who filed for player-elected arbitration by Sunday's deadline, but their respective teams decided to move forward with the process.

The deadline for team-elected salary arbitration notification was at 5 p.m. ET Monday. Hearings are set to be held from Aug. 11-26.

Both Fiala and Sanheim can continue to work toward a deal in the meantime.

Fiala, 25, registered 40 points across 50 games this past campaign. He just wrapped up a two-year deal that carried an average annual value of $3 million.

Sanheim put up 15 points in 55 contests during the 2020-21 season. The 25-year-old defenseman finished a two-year pact with a cap hit of $3.25 million.
