Dale Tallon brought Noel Acciari in to stabilize the Florida Panthers’ fourth line.
They certainly got a lot more than they bargained for when it came to Acciari.
Acciari made a name for himself in Boston as a fourth-line grinder, a player who, in his own words, would “do anything and everything you can for your team whether it is blocking a shot, throwing a hit or scoring a goal.”
The goals did not come very much in Boston as he did what he needed defensively and let others carry the scoring.
He did plenty of scoring with the Panthers last season — especially just before Christmas.
