His professional career would be a short one, with two uninspiring years bouncing around the minor leagues. His highlight was his two game call up to the NHL in which he registered a single assist.
Acomb would return to southern Ontario in 1971 and star with the Barrie Flyers on the OHA senior circuit. In 1974 he led Barrie to the Allan Cup championship as Canada's top amateur team.
The following season he returned to professional hockey, although it was in Austria. After that interesting experience he returned to Barrie, played one more season of senior hockey and then hung up his blades.
