I know. But it's not relevant. Maybe take the odd shift in a pinch, but there have been guys who become fowards because they're more goon than defenseman.

I completely agree.
Question: could he have signed a PTO without a Flyer contract? If so you'd think they would have given him a look with the Phantoms if they were serious about keeping him.

Alt had a fine year. He was asked to play a shut down role. As a result our frshmen golie ended up with a 1.88 GAA. Down from 2.32 and last years senior goalie. Going into the year we figured our D would make or break the season. Alt stepped up.

He has the ability to play on the PP and can move the puck well. He can get wild at times. Very wild. Among gopher d men more like Keith Ballard.

Was an All state QB and could have been a top state player in basketball. Amazing athletism and sports IQ. Not affraid to go for it, but has composure to play if safe. Will need a defined role or like i said, he will be OoC.

Homer heard Phillies fans over the winter saying we should trade for Mike Olt so he traded for this guy.

I know he is signed, but is he offically with the team? the ahl site doesnt have him listed anywhere even in transactions.

He signed an ATO with them. They don't really play much games during the middle of week so I would guess he'll be in the lineup next game.

Not sure where I read it, but he was practicing in the first pair with Syvret, due to all the injuries/call ups, so he's with the team.

Here's a lengthy article from last night...

http://therinkreport.blogspot.com/20...delete-49.html

Quote:
“My dad kind of bred me to be a football player,” Alt said. “That was kind of the plan. I had offers going through high school, and when it came down to it, it was hockey or football. My senior year, I got drafted (into the NHL). I had scholarship offers for football. I chose hockey. I’m glad I did.”

His father, however, was not exactly thrilled.

“We had probably 100 in the course of a couple months, trying to figure out what I was going to do,” the younger Alt said. “He was an unhappy man for a while, which I understand, but the more I’ve progressed and moved on in my career of hockey, he’s understood and become a big fan.”

Alt signed his first professional contract with the Philadelphia Flyers late last week, and inked an amateur try-out with the Phantoms Tuesday. He will spend the last two weeks of this season with Adirondack, and is a candidate to return to the Phantoms’ blue line for the 2013-14 campaign.

By signing those contracts, he opted to forgo his senior season at the University of Minnesota.

“I felt that the time was right for me to take the next step, move on to a smaller sheet,” Alt said. “Obviously, we’re used to playing on a big rink (at Minnesota). Playing a lot more games, whereas college it’s two a weekend. You’re only playing 40 games. It’s time to step up for me.”

Sounds like he is fully commited to playing hockey now.

The skillset and upside is there. Might turn into a steal for the Flyers within a couple of years.
