VIDEO: Carolina Hurricanes Prospect Mark Alt Scoring His 5th Goal/Postgame Interview

Hello Canes Country readers. My name is Nathan Wells and I'm the assistant editor over at SB Nation Minnesota. One of the things I do is cover University of Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey which allows me a chance to watch Hurricanes prospect Mark Alt.

This weekend Minnesota played Nebraska-Omaha in a two-game series where they swept the Mavericks. It also saw Alt score his fifth goal Saturday night, which tied the game at one 42 seconds after Nebraska-Omaha scored.

While Alt leads the Gophers in goals by a defenseman, he is normally more defensive and uses his size well compared to normal partner Ben Marshall (Detroit Red Wings). Marshall was injured this past weekend but Alt remained a steady presence on the blue line.

The goal as well as a post-game interview are after the jump (EDIT: For some reason the embedded goal disappears after publishing but it can be viewed here). Hope that everyone enjoys getting a look at one of their prospects.
