RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Alt played in six games for the Adirondack Phantoms last year, where he amassed one goal, one assist, and two penalty minutes. The young, defensive prospect needs to refine his ability to contribute offensively, so it's unlikely the former second-round pick will be seeing much NHL ice time this year.
Alt was selected by the Hurricanes in the second round (No. 53 overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Listed at 6-foot-3, 194 pounds, Alt is bulky for his age given that he will only be 20 years old shortly after the season starts in October. Last year, he found his way into 35 games with the University of Minnesota, notching two goals, eight assists and 22 PIMs. The Hurricanes obviously think highly of him based on the teamís decision to make him an early draft pick, but the young rearguard will likely need a few years to work his way up the hockey ranks.
Alt was drafted by the Hurricanes with 53rd pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. At 6-foot-3, 194 pounds, he already has the size needed to defend in the NHL. Unlike many skaters his size, he is graceful on his skates. You can expect to see Alt skating for the Minnesota Gophers in 2010-11.
