Alt played in four games with the Flyers, averaging 13:15 of icetime and compiling an even plus/minus rating. He played solid hockey in a pinch for the orange and black.
With the Flyers playing at home tomorrow with six healthy defensemen, sending down Alt to get some playing time with the Phantoms this weekend makes sense. He is scheduled to be recalled on Monday to make the trip out west with the team as the Flyers travel to Minnesota and Winnipeg next week.
This is a good sign that all six defensemen are fully healthy for tomorrow night, but a defenseman will be called up as an extra man for next week’s road trip.
