Mark Alt (concussion) wasn't on the ice Thursday for Philadelphia's training camp.

He was busy receiving testing for the concussion he suffered in Monday's rookie game against Washington. He dressed in six games with AHL Adirondack last season following a three-year stint with the Minnesota Golden Gophers. When he recovers it's likely he'll resume playing in the minors.

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.

Mark Alt has inked an entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Alt had seven assists and 20 penalty minutes in 39 games with the University of Minnesota this season. The Flyers originally acquired Alt's rights from the Carolina Hurricanes on Jan. 13. "Alt is 6-3, he can skate, he's playing in a good program on a good team," Holmgren said at the time. "We've liked him. He's a good young prospect."
