The Boston Bruins announced earlier Thursday that forward Noel Acciari will be out for tonight’s game against the Blue Jackets. At that time, we did not know how long the Rhode Island native would be out of action for, but we know that information now.
As documented by the Tweet above, Noel Acciari will be out of action for the next four weeks due to some sort of lower-body injury. This season, Acciari has played in 12 games for the black and gold, putting up 2 assists as well as 4 penalty minutes, a +1 rating, and ranks third on the Bruins roster for hits. (26).
The injury is unfortunate for the Bruins, but if you want to look for a positive scenario, Boston will most likely play another rookie, who could very well surprise people. The chances are unlikely, but you never know. Especially in today’s age.
