NEW: Boston Bruins Sign PC’s Acciari to 2 Year Deal
Tuesday, June 02, 2015
Acciari finished his senior season with 15 goals and 17 assists and was named the NCAA East Regional's Most Outstanding Player before helping lead the Friars to their first ever National Championship.
Acciari red shirted his freshman season and did have one more year of eligibility left. However, due to NHL labor rules, if Acciari had stayed one more year in school he would not have been eligible for a two year deal, only one.
Acciari finishes his Providence career with a total of 32 goals and 33 assists, adding up to 65 points.
Acciari is from Johnston, Rhode Island and played at Bishop Hendricken High School where he led the Hawks to a State Championship in 2007 and was named team captain in 2009.
