Acciari (upper body) will be in action against the Hurricanes on Monday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. With Anthony Duclair (undisclosed) set to miss some time, Acciari will be activated off injured reserve prior to puck drop and slot into a fourth-line role. Prior to getting hurt, the 29-year-old winger has yet to register a point despite averaging 14:37 of ice time in 12 games. As such, fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on significant offensive production from Acciari moving forward.
Acciari (upper body) is progressing in his recovery but won't be an option against Dallas on Monday after coach John Quenneville told reporters, "We'll know more tomorrow... He's progressing," Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. In 12 games this year, Acciari has yet to register a point and has recorded just 14 shots while dishing out 33 hits. Given his limited offensive production, the 29-year-old center shouldn't be expected to garner much more than mid-range fantasy value, at best, even in formats that prioritize defensive stats.
Acciari (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly. This move is retroactive to Feb. 13, so he's eligible to return as soon as this Saturday versus the Red Wings. The 29-year-old was initially given a 7-to-10 day timeline to return after suffering the injury. Once he returns, the 29-year-old will slot into a bottom-six role. He produced 33 hits and no points through the first 12 games.
Acciari (upper body) won't play in Monday's game versus the Lightning. Acciari is expected to miss 7-to-10 days, so there's a chance he's placed on injured reserve to free up a roster spot. Juho Lammikko and Vinnie Hinostroza are both candidates to enter the lineup in Acciari's place.
Acciari recorded three shots, two hits and a block in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Red Wings. After a surprising offensive breakout last season that saw Acciari score a career-high 20 goals and 27 points, the 29-year-old has not been able to muster any offense through the team's first six games. Most of Acciari's success came when he skated in the top six last season -- something he is unlikely to do this year with Florida's new depth on the wing.
