The Flyers on Sunday signed defenseman Mark Alt to an entry-level contract, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Alt (6-3, 205) was acquired by the Flyers on Jan. 13 as part of the trade with the Carolina Hurricanes that brought Brian Boucher back to the organization.

"Alt is 6-3, he can skate, he's playing in a good program on a good team," Holmgren said at the time of the trade. "We've liked him. He's a good young prospect."

The 21-year-old recorded seven assists and a plus-19 rating in 39 games with the University of Minnesota this past season.

Carolina selected Alt with the 53rd overall pick in the 2010 draft.
