Mark Alt injury: Flyers prospect suffers concussion, because sometimes hockey sucks

Mark Alt is helped off the ice on Monday. - (Chris Gordon/Russian Machine Never Breaks)

Prospect defenseman Mark Alt suffered a concussion in Monday's rookie game against Washington. No word on how it'll impact his season.

Mark Alt left the University of Minnesota a year early to pursue his professional career. He was a big part of the Golden Gophers defense last season and would have been an even bigger part of it had he remained in college, but the risk of jumping to the pros early was one Alt was willing to make at age 21.

He's still hoping to be a big part of the Adirondack Phantoms defense this fall in the AHL, but those plans took a turn in Monday's Capitals vs. Flyers rookie game. Alt suffered a concussion on a hit from Caps prospect Tom Wilson. In a meaningless rookie game. Just the worst.

Let's hope it's not that serious and that Alt is fighting for ice time in Adirondack before we know it.
