The Penguins got a little bit tougher this afternoon, signing C-Noel Acciari to a 3-year, 2 million dollar deal. Acciari, along with winger, Matthew Nieto. who was signed earlier today, will add a lot of grit to the Penguins bottom 6.


Acciari is a player that President of Operations, Kyle Dubas, is familiar with. While at Toronto last year, Dubas obtained him in a trade deadline deal. He had 14 goals in 77 games last season, playing in a defensive role with both St. Louis and Toronto. Acciari hits everything that moves and is good at winning puck battles in the corner. He also does a good job of puck protection and is defensively sound at center.


Acciari has had trouble staying healthy in the past, having numerous seasons cut short due to injury but if he stays healthy, he should provide the Penguins with a nice option at 4th line center.
