The tough forward for the Bruins was signed to a two-year entry-level contract as an undrafted free agent in the summer of 2015 after three seasons at Providence College. The 27-year-old from Johnston, Rhode Island played 180 regular season games posting 18 goals and 13 assists for 31 points and a -10 rating. While racking up 80 penalty minutes, Acciari was never afraid to throw his body around and occasionally drop the gloves.
In 35 playoff games, he posted four goals and three assists with a plus-two rating and four penalty minutes.
I made a video last night of my favourite moments of Noel Acciari’s four years as a Boston Bruin. I’m glad he’s getting the money he deserves now. He wouldn’t score or put up many points, but watching him give it his all every game was really great. Thank you, Noel. pic.twitter.com/FmXanAwGLL
