Acciari looks to have solidified a spot as the fourth-line center, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

Head coach Joel Quenneville is close to having his game lineup ready for the team's season-opener Sunday, and Acciari looks to have locked in the fourth line-center role. Despite breaking out with his first 20-goal season last year, Acciari will not be back as a top-six winger this year. He will likely be flanked by Brett Connolly on the right and Panthers newcomer Ryan Lomberg on the left.
