The Philadelphia Flyers' general manager Ron Hextall announced that he has recalled defenseman Mark Alt from the AHL and that he will join the team leading up to this afternoon's matinee game against the Boston Bruins.

Alt, who has played 6 games for the Flyers this year, has spent most of the season with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in the AHL, scoring 9 points in 16 games.

He doesn't have a confirmed spot in today's lineup - he will likely be a game-time decision.

Alt's most recent stint with the Flyers ended a little over a week ago, when he was returned on loan to the Phantoms on November 22nd.
