Rangers Acquire Defenseman Adam McQuaid From Bruins

Bruins trade Adam Mc Quaid to Rangers             Tuesday

Adam McQuaid was acquired by the New York Rangers in a trade with the Boston Bruins for defenseman Steven Kampfer, a fourth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft and a conditional seventh-round pick in 2019.

McQuaid, 31, has played in 462 career games for the Bruins, dating back to the 2009-10 season.

Limited to 38 games largely because of a broken leg last season, McQuaid had one goal and three assists. He made his professional debut with the Bruins in 2010 and was a member of the Stanley Cup winning team.

Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid (54) and Toronto Maple Leafs center Patrick Marleau (12) reach for the puck during the second period of Game 4 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series Thursday, April 19, 2018, in Toronto.

Bruins GM Don Sweeney made the announcement Tuesday morning.

Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy, who joined the organization as an assistant coach at AHL Providence a year after McQuaid arrived, saw most of McQuaid's development, too.

Kampfer, who turns 30 on September 24, had one assist in 22 games for the Rangers last season.

"We are very excited about the two teams we have this year, just as we thought the teams last year were a great fit for the China event", David Proper, the NHL's executive vice president of media and worldwide strategy, recently told That's.

"It's tough to see him go...10 years we've been together, going back to Providence".

"It's a very hard day, we want to thank Adam", general manager Don Sweeney said Tuesday morning. On November 8, 2016, he was traded to the New York Rangers.

McQuaid has one year and $2.75 million remaining on his contract.
