Prior to turning professional, Acolatse played major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League (WHL). Acolatse was drafted by the WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds in the 2005 Bantam Draft in the fourth round, 76th overall. Acolatse played in the WHL for five seasons. He played for Seattle for three and a half years before being traded to the Saskatoon Blades in January 2010. The Prince George Cougars acquired Acolatse from the Saskatoon Blades on October 3, 2010.
On April 3, 2011, the San Jose Sharks signed Acolatse as an undrafted free agent to a three-year entry-level contract. He was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks, for the duration of his contract.
Upon completion of his entry-level deal, Acolatse was not tendered a qualifying offer from the Sharks, releasing him as a free agent. On July 3, 2014, Acolatse signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames. He was assigned to AHL affilaite, the Adirondack Flames for the 2014–15 season.
Acolatse suffered a repeat of the previous off-season in not being tendered by the Flames. On July 1, 2015, he was signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Florida Panthers. In the 2015–16 season, Acolatse was assigned to remain in the AHL with affiliate, the Portland Pirates. As a regular on the blueline with the Pirates, Acolatse appeared in 62 games with 13 points.
