Rangers Acquire Defenseman Adam McQuaid From Bruins

In exchange the B's get back defenseman Steven Kampfer, a 2019 fourth-round draft pick and a 2019 conditional seventh-round draft pick.

Nicholas Goss: "Trading Adam McQuaid should free up some ice time for younger Bruins defensemen, of which there are many". NY boast Kevin Shattenkirk, Tony DeAngelo, and Neal Pionk on that side of the ice. A staple on the Boston line since his rookie (and Stanley Cup-winning) 2010-11 season, McQuaid played in only 38 games last season, missing almost three months after suffering a broken right fibula while blocking a shot on October 19. McQuaid played in all 12 of his team's playoff games, getting 13:19 per while recording a goal and assist while the Bruins were knocked out in the second round by Tampa Bay.

The teams announced the trade Tuesday before the Bruins flew to China for two exhibition games.

He appeared in 22 contests for the Blueshirts last season, chipping in an assist. He has one year left on his deal with a salary cap hit of $650,000.

The soon-to-be-30-year-old Kampfer has essentially been a depth defenseman throughout his career, most recently with the Rangers and before that with the Panthers and Wild. However, he's never played more than 47 games in a season, bouncing back and forth between the National Hockey League and AHL.

Kampfer plays a much different style of defense than McQuaid, as he's a smaller, quicker defenseman.

Kampfer was originally drafted by Anaheim Ducks in the fourth round (93rd overall) in 2007 but didn't play an National Hockey League game with that organization.

This is a return to the Bruins for the 29-year-old Kampfer, who made his National Hockey League debut with the team in 2010.
