The Bruins announced Tuesday that they have recalled center Noel Acciari from Providence. Acciari, Lee Stempniak and John-Michael Liles all participated in an optional morning skate for the B's Tuesday. Acciari is in his first professional season after playing three years at Providence College. The Rhode Island native has seven goals and 12 assists for 19 points in 42 AHL games this season. "I like what I saw from training camp" a real strong, gritty guy, good hockey sense, skates, forechecks hard. Will go to the dirty areas and so on, so forth," Claude Julien said Tuesday morning. "We're going to have a real good look at him here. It's a great opportunity for him, but it's certainly coming in at this time of the season, for him to have that opportunity is pretty special. We'll have a good look at him tonight and we'll see how well he does. I suspect he'll do well, from what I hear I've had nothing but great reports on him, so we'll see where he is when it comes to playing at this level."
