The Boston Bruins announced Tuesday they traded the veteran defenceman to the New York Rangers for Steven Kampfer, a 2019 fourth-round draft pick and a 2019 conditional seventh-round draft pick. He had 15 points (three goals, 12 assists).
McQuaid spent nine years with the Bruins and made his bones as a tough third-pairing defender who was beloved in the locker room, in part because of his willingness to stand up for his teammates on the ice.
The 6-foot-4, 212 pound defenseman made his first National Hockey League appearance with the Bruins in 2009-10.
Over his nine-year National Hockey League career with the Bruins, McQuaid has played in 462 games, tallying 13 goals and 53 assists for 66 points. "We want to thank Adam".
Kampfer played in 32 games over two seasons with the Rangers, registering one goal and two assists.More news: Florence strengthens 'rapidly,' now powerful Category 4 hurricane
A native of Ann Arbor, MI, Kampfer has played in 166 career National Hockey League contests over five National Hockey League seasons with the Bruins, Minnesota Wild, Florida Panthers and Rangers.
McQuaid is entering the final year of his current contract, carrying a $2.75 million cap hit.
Limited to 38 games largely because of a broken leg last season, McQuaid had one goal and three assists.
Now, he joins a young Rangers team, which needs depth at defense, specifically with right handers.
Kampfer's career high in points is 10, which came as a member of the Boston Bruins in 2010-2011, the year they won the Stanley Cup.
