  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Game-time decision Thursday

    Acciari (concussion) will be a game-time decision versus Montreal on Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Acciari has been out of action since Feb. 6. He has a goal, three assists, 91 hits and 59 blocked shots in 39 games. Should he return to the lineup against the Canadiens, look for Jesse Puljujarvi to be a healthy scratch.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Off injured reserve

    Acciari (concussion) was taken off injured reserve Thursday, per Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports, which sets the stage for him to draw into the lineup for the evening's game against Montreal.

    Acciari missed the Penguins' previous six contests. He has three goals, four points, 91 hits and 59 blocks in 39 outings in 2023-24. Acciari is projected to play on the fourth line Thursday while Jesse Puljujarvi might serve as a healthy scratch.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Cleared for contact

    Acciari (concussion) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    The fact that Acciari has been cleared to start taking contact is certainly an encouraging development, but there's still no concrete timetable for his return to game action. Either way, the 32-year-old vet has picked up only four points through 39 contests this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Placed on injured reserve

    Acciari (concussion) was designated for injured reserve Tuesday.

    Acciari has already missed two games after suffering a concussion and now figures to be out of action for at least two more as the Penguins enter a back-to-back against Florida and Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Unless the Penguins are going to go with seven defensemen, fantasy players should expect a forward to be called up from the minors to fill out the forward group.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Diagnosed with concussion

    Acciari has been diagnosed with a concussion according to coach Mike Sullivan on Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Acciari's diagnosis shouldn't come as a surprise after his helmet was dislodged on a hit from Winnipeg's Brenden Dillon, who was assessed a three-game suspension as a result. Per Pens Inside Scoop, Acciari won't play during the Penguins' upcoming two-game road trip. Colin White is set to center the fourth line while Acciari is sidelined.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Exits after high hit

    Acciari (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Jets after receiving a high hit from Brenden Dillon.

    Acciari needed help getting off of the ice after the hit, and he was ruled out before the second period ended. If the 32-year-old misses additional time, Colin White could enter the lineup.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Game-time decision

    Acciari (upper body) will be a game-time decision against Seattle on Monday.

    Acciari worked on the fourth line during Sunday's practice, which bodes well for his availability versus the Kraken. He was a late scratch for Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina. Acciari has chipped in four points, 39 shots on goal, 51 blocked shots and 63 hits over 33 appearances this season.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Good to go

    Acciari (upper body) will play Monday against Seattle.

    Acciari will return to his spot on the fourth line following a one-game absence. He has four points, 39 shots on goal, 51 blocked shots and 63 hits over 33 appearances this season. Acciari's return will bump Colin White from the lineup.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Day-to-day with upper-body injury

    Acciari is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

    Acciari was a last-minute scratch from the Penguins' lineup Saturday. The 32-year-old's absence allowed Colin White to draw into the lineup. Acciari's next chance to play is Monday versus the Kraken.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Late scratch Saturday

    Acciari (undisclosed) was a late scratch for Saturday's game against Carolina, per Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff.

    Acciari was originally projected to center the fourth line, but Colin White will instead serve in that role while making his Penguins debut. Acciari has three goals, four points, 63 hits and 51 blocks in 33 outings in 2023-24.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Removed from IR

    Acciari (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Monday, per the NHL media site.

    It appears as though Acciari will return to the lineup Monday versus Minnesota after being considered a game-time decision following the morning skate. He is projected to center the fourth line following a seven-game absence. Acciari has supplied two goals, one assist, 25 shots on net, 28 blocked shots and 44 hits in 22 outings this campaign.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Game-time call Monday

    Acciari (lower body) will be a game-time decision against the Wild on Monday.

    Acciari could get back into the lineup for the first time since Nov. 30 versus the Lightning, a stretch of seven games on the shelf due to his lower-body injury. The forward's primary value to the team comes from his ability to kill penalties, but he managed two goals on seven shots over his last six contests before the injury. If he plays, Acciari will likely move into a fourth-line role that would see Johnny Gruden dropped from the lineup.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Placed on injured reserve

    Acciari (lower body) was put on injured reserve Friday.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Ruled out for road trip

    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.

    Acciari could be a candidate for injured reserve if the Penguins decide they need a roster spot during the trip. Joona Koppanen made his season debut against the Flyers on Saturday with Acciari unavailable and will likely continue to serve in a bottom-six role.

  • Penguins' Noel Acciari: Suffers lower-body injury

    Acciari suffered a lower-body injury Thursday and will not be available Saturday versus Philadelphia, per Penguins reporter Michelle Crechiolo.

  • 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. While Acciari hasn't provided much offensively with Pittsburgh -- he now has a goal and an assist through 17 games -- he's certainly offered a physical presence on the fourth line, racking up 22 blocked shots and a team-leading 36 hits.

  • 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.
