The Philadelphia Flyers have placed Mark Alt on waivers today, likely in hopes of sending the defenseman back to the minor leagues. Dalton Prout and Dennis Rasmussen, who were both waived yesterday, have cleared and can now be assigned to the AHL for their respective teams. Alt has played eight games for the Flyers this year but is likely the odd man out if Brandon Manning is nearing a return. The 26-year old has shown some ability to play at the NHL level but has never grabbed a full-time spot and held on to it. Selected in the second round in 2010, his career has been almost exclusively spent in the minor leagues.
