    Acciari (lower body) is traveling with the team but is not expected to play during Pittsburgh's three-game road trip, Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports Monday.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Notches first goal of season

    Acciari recorded a goal, four hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights.

    Acciari extended the Penguins' lead to 2-0 midway through the second period, one-timing a net-front feed from Matt Nieto for his first goal of the season.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Gathers helper in win

    Acciari logged an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 10-2 win over the Sharks.

    Acciari helped out on Matt Nieto's second-period marker. The helper got Acciari on the scoresheet for the first time in 10 games this season. The 31-year-old center has added 12 shots on net, 19 hits, 12 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating while working exclusively on the fourth line. That limited role makes it unlikely he'll score enough to be an option for fantasy managers.
