Philadelphia prospect, defenseman Mark Alt is the son of former All-Pro offensive tackle John Alt.

Alt wanted to follow his father into the NFL but realized he had a better chance in hockey. "As I got older, I just realized I wanted to be professional in something," Alt said. "And obviously I leaned toward hockey and that's what I followed. I had more opportunity in hockey and it was something I felt I was better at. I just liked it more. I just like the flow of the game, and football is more structured. . . . In football, my dad pushed and my family pushed, and hockey I just did on my own. "I felt I had a better future in hockey." Alt joined the Flyers last season after his junior season with the University of Minnesota and had a goal and an assist in six games with the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms. He needs more time in the minors but he has good size at 6'3 and is a good puck handler as well as a good skater.
