John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Boston Bruins forward Noel Acciari will be sidelined for approximately six weeks following surgery on his left index finger, the team announced Saturday.

Acciari suffered the injury in Thursday's season-opening game against the Nashville Predators, leaving early in the second period.

He was projected to fill a role on the team's fourth line this season. The 25-year-old split last season between the Bruins and the club's minor-league affiliate in Providence.

Acciari has tallied two goals and four assists in 49 NHL games.
