FLYERS PROSPECT Taylor Leier likely could not have scripted yesterday any better.
On the day he signed his first pro contract, Leier lifted the Flyers' rookies to a 1-0 win over the Capitals' rookies in an exhibition game in Arlington, Va.
The same could not be said for highly touted defenseman Mark Alt.
Alt, 21, suffered a concussion in his rookie debut with the Flyers when he was driven into the boards by Caps rookie Tom Wilson late in the second period. Reports indicated Alt appeared to hit the back of his head on the dasher board on his way down to the ice. The scrimmage took a nasty turn after Alt's injury. Flyers rookies Scott Laughton and Tyrell Goulbourne both targeted Wilson for retribution in the third period.
