|(2/26/18) Alt was claimed off waivers by the Avalanche (heading over from Philadelphia) on Monday.|
The University of Minnesota standout was originally selected by the Hurricanes in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. A right shot, he'd only manage to draw into nine NHL games since procuring a three-year, entry-level deal. and ultimately, a one-year standard contract with the Flyers. He's still searching for his first NHL point, and is set to become a Group-6 unrestricted free agent this summer, which is a special provision for a player who is age 25-plus in the calendar year for which the deal expires -- Alt is 26 years old.
