Boston Bruins Resign Forward Noel Acciari

The Boston Bruins will have a hard working bottom six forward back this season.

On Wednesday the team announced that they had resigned 25-year-old forward Noel Acciari. The terms of the deal for the Johnston, R.I native is a two-year, one-way, $1.45 million contract.

Acciari’s cap hit for the next two seasons is $725k.

Acciari is a Bishop Hendricken High School product who went on to win a National Championship for Providence College in 2014-15. He went un-drafted out of college despite being a captain in his senior year for the Friars.  The Boston Bruins signed him originally on June 3, 2015 as a free agent.

At the NHL level he has played in parts of the last two seasons for Boston with 48 games played with 6 points and an 10:11 average time on ice.

With this signing it seems clear that the Boston Bruins are planning on using Acciari on their fourth line for the foreseeable future. He is a hard fighting bottom six forward who can hold his own on both sides of the ice. This is the first real move of the offseason by the Boston Bruins in terms of resigning one of their free agents. More is expected to come with many Black and Gold still remaining unsigned like David Pastrnak.

Boston Bruins Already Having Injury Problem

Bruins Injury Updates Have Begun

Today GM Don Sweeney has given an update on a few injured players.

Matt Beleskey who which is not a big deal since he might not even make the team is day-to-day with a foot contusion. This happened is the B’s last preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens

Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson is day-to-day as well with an upper-body injury that he received in the game against Detroit on September 19th. Hopefully, this is nothing because he was a kid that was slotted to make a roster spot.

Last is Torrey Krug who will be out for at least three weeks pending a re-evaluation at that time. He was hit in the jaw with the puck and suffered a non-displaced fracture. It occurred in the game against Detroit.

Also on another note, the team has sent Jack Studnicka and Kyle Keyser back to the OHL.

The biggest injury is with JFK, now some may say Krug but I think the B’s can find a replacement for him. McAvoy will most likely take over on the power play and maybe this opens the door for a guy like Rob O’Gara or Matt Grzelcyk. Other than these few hiccups Boston should be a fun team to watch this season. Especially if they stay as young as they have in camp and the preseason games.

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:
