DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenseman Mark Alt to a two-year deal.
The team claimed the 26-year-old off waivers from Philadelphia on Feb. 26. He played in seven games for Colorado during the regular season but didn't play in the postseason.
Alt was selected by Carolina in the second round of the 2010 draft before being dealt to the Flyers in 2013. The 6-foot-4, 201-pound Alt played three seasons for the University of Minnesota, where he had seven goals and 32 assists in 117 games.
His father is John Alt, who was an offensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs.
