Observations:

November 2017 – After four games where he was held off the scoresheet, Mark Alt has been returned to Lehigh Valley. He will hope to resume making waves there as he has six points in 10 games for the Phantoms so far this season. Edric Joseph

July 2017 – Mark Alt has signed a one-year pact with the Philadelphia Flyers. He had 11 points in 40 appearances for the LeHigh Valley Phantoms this past year. He can handle the puck and does so with good mobility. He will need to show more of that if he wants to make a favourable impression in training camp this fall. Edric Joseph

 

June 2016 - Alt has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Flyers after a successful third season in the AHL. The former second round pick had a bounceback campaign after injuries derailed his 2014-15 season. While the Flyers' have an abundance of top-level defense prospects on the way, Alt offers nice stability to mentor the youth in Lehigh Valley and could be capable in short stints with the big club if injuries arise. - Cam Robinson

 

Feb 2015 - Alt has returned to the Phantoms lineup after missing significant time with shoulder and hand injuries. Unfortunately for the 2010 draft pick, it likely cost him a chance to play in meaniful NHL games earlier this season when the Flyers were shorthanded with injuries to Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald. Although Alt has only played in 23 contests for Lehigh Valley this year (six points and minus-six rating), the young defenseman will still be in the running to be recalled by the Flyers down the stretch if he proves to be healthy. According to Phantoms coach Terry Murray, Alt is "very intense", "hard-working" and a "high-character" guy who needs to be considered a top defensive prospect along with the likes of Shayne Gostisbehere, Sam Morin, Travis Sanheim and Robert Hagg. Zach Hopkins

 

January, 2013- Alt was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. The big defenseman will continue to play at the University of Minnesota. Rich Dillon

February, 2012 – In his sophomore season at the University of Minnesota, Mark Alt is showing the offensive side of his game. The big defenseman has 22 points in 39 games, easily surpassing his freshman total of 10 points in 35 contests. He'll probably play out the final two years of his college commitment.

 

FantasyOutlook: C

Alt has offensive upside, and will need a couple more years to try to realize that potential before contending for a roster spot in Carolina.
