Acciari (upper body) was minus-2 with three hits in Monday's 4-1 loss to Nashville.
Acciari was back in the lineup for the first time in 11 days and logged just over 11 minutes of ice time. He's gone without a point in eight consecutive games and has generated more than a single shot on goal in just two of those contests. For the year, Acciari has four goals and seven assists in 37 games, a notable drop from the 20 goals he produced in 66 games a year ago.
Acciari (upper body) will make his return Monday in Nashville.
Acciari will rejoin the lineup for the first time since April 15. He was mired in a seven-game point drought before the injury and has just 11 points in 36 games this season, so Acciari's return is unlikely to make waves in fantasy circles.
Acciari (upper body) could return during the Panthers' upcoming four-game road trip.
Acciari has only tallied 11 points in 36 games this campaign, so most fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status. The 29-year-old forward will likely return to a middle-six role whenever he's cleared to play.
Acciari (upper body) is still considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Blue Jackets, NHL.com reports.
Acciari will miss a third straight game Tuesday and the Panthers have yet to release an expected timetable for his return. The 29-year-old forward has picked up 11 points through 36 contests this season.
Acciari (upper body) won't play Monday against the Blue Jackets and is listed as day-to-day.
Acciari will sit out a second straight game due to this upper-body injury, which also kept him from playing Saturday against the Lightning. He won't have to wait long for his next chance to get back into the lineup, as the Blue Jackets and Panthers will face off again Tuesday. Sam Bennett should continue to center the second line in Acciari's absence.

This clarifies why Acciari wasn't able to play Saturday. He should be considered day-to-day for now.
Acciari (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Lightning, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
It's unclear why Acciari is coming out of the lineup, and there's a chance he's simply a healthy scratch. After all, he was on a seven-game pointless streak before Saturday's scratch.
Acciari scored a goal on five shots and handed out three hits in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over Detroit.
Acciari knotted the game at 1-1 with 8:05 left in the first period, cleaning up an errant Carter Verhaeghe wraparound attempt. The goal, Acciari's first since his March 6 hat trick, snapped a 13-game drought for the 29-year-old.
Acciari provided two assists, three shots on net, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Stars.
Acciari set up both of Carter Verhaeghe's first-period tallies, the latter coming on the power play. Saturday was the second time in three games Acciari put up a pair of assists. He's filled in a top-six role with Aleksander Barkov (lower body) out. For the year, the 29-year-old Acciari has 10 points, 41 shots, 55 hits, 36 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in 26 appearances.
Acciari collected two assists and three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Chicago. He also dished out a pair of hits and won a dominant 77.3 percent (17-of-22) of his faceoffs.
Acciari displayed some nifty stickhandling in tight before dishing across the crease to Anton Stralman for Florida's first goal midway through the second period. He also set up Alexander Wennberg's power-play tally in the closing minutes of regulation. Acciari has eight points (three goals, five assists) on the year, with all of them coming over his last 10 games.
Acciari scored three goals Saturday in a 6-2 victory over the Predators. It was his third career hat trick.
Acciari entered the game looking for his first point of the season and he notched a hattie. The first came on a 2-on-1 after he got around defender Mattias Ekholm and fired it glove side. The second was a sweet rebound after he aggressively pursued the puck. Acciari's third came on the power play late in the third. He's a bit of a fantasy spare part, but remember he did pound in 20 goals in a Cy Young season last year (20 goals, seven assists). Nice night.
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.
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.
Acciari notched an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Kings.
Acciari has been streaky with just four points through 12 games in February. The 28-year-old has a career-high 25 points to go with 88 shots, 109 hits and 90 blocks in 58 contests this year. Acciari is being used in a top-six role currently -- that should give him some DFS appeal as well as some added value in deeper, season-long formats.
Acciari (upper body) will play Saturday against the Oilers, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Acciari left Thursday's game because of an upper-body injury but whatever was bothering him then is fine now, and he'll skate on Florida's fourth line as a result. In his last uninterrupted appearance, Acciari finished with three points and will look to build off the momentum of that against Edmonton.
Acciari (upper body) is slated to suit up for Saturday's game against Oilers, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
Assuming it holds true, Acciari will avoid missing time because of the upper-body issue outside of his injury-shortened appearance Thursday. Confirmation of his status should arrive on game day, as the 28-year-old center looks to build on his career-high 24 points.
