Acciari (upper body) has been medically cleared to play but is expected to be a healthy scratch against the Islanders on Tuesday, Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now reports. Acciari has been sidelined for the Panthers' previous nine contests due to his lingering upper-body issue. Now that the 30-year-old natural center is cleared to play, he should be in contention for a spot in the bottom six, though the team will likely rotate through the likes of Acciari, Maxim Mamin and Joe Thornton for minutes.
Acciari (upper body) will not play Sunday against the Red Wings, according to George Richards of Panthers Press Box. Acciari has not appeared in a game this month, and he will remain sidelined for at least one more contest.
Acciari (upper body) will not play Friday versus the Sabres, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. Acciari is set to miss his fifth straight game, and it's safe to assume he's out indefinitely until he returns to practice. The 30-year-old was hurt March 29 against the Canadiens, and there's been little information about his injury since it occurred.
Acciari (upper body) will not play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. Acciari will miss his fourth consecutive game Tuesday. There's currently no clear timetable for the 30-year-old's return. He's tallied five points in 14 games during an injury-plagued 2021-22 campaign.
Acciari (upper body) won't travel with the team over the weekend, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. This news rules Acciari out for Saturday's game in New Jersey and Sunday's tilt in Buffalo. On the bright side, coach Andrew Brunette said Acciari's absence isn't expected to last much longer, so the veteran forward could be available as soon as Tuesday's home game against the Maple Leafs.
