Sanford was born in Salem, Massachusetts, but grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire, which is why he was at the city's Green Acres Elementary School. He also went to Derry for a public event at Pinkerton Academy, where he played hockey from 2009-12 and graduated in 2013.

Sanford, who grew up a fan of the Boston Bruins, played 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games for the Blues and had all four of his playoff points against the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final. He scored his lone playoff goal in St. Louis' Cup-clinching, 4-1 win in Game at Boston.
