Bruins trade Adam McQuaid to the Rangers

Boston Bruins defenseman Adam Mc Quaid celebrates his goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins during the third period of Game 4 in the Eastern Conference finals of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs in Boston on Friday

A spare roster part for stretches of last season and pegged for more of the same in 2018-19, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was dealt Tuesday morning to NY, where the 31-year-old back liner will be expected to log ample playing minutes on a Rangers team in rebuild mode. McQuaid is considered a good possession player with CF percentages north of 50 each of the last two years.

McQuaid, a rugged 6-foot-4, 212-pounder (he fought new teammate Cody McLeod three times last season) turns 32 on October 12. In 2010-11, the same year the team won the Stanley Cup, McQuaid became a mainstay on the back end. His most impressive stat was his 652 penalty minutes.

Bruins GM Don Sweeney made the announcement Tuesday morning.

"Yeah, it's a tough day", Marchand said, via CBS Boston.

"We want to thank Adam", Sweeney said during a press conference. "He was a tremendous Bruin, a tremendous Bruin".

Carmen Yulín Cruz , Mayor of Puerto Rico's capital San Juan and vocal critic of Trump, tweeted her dismay at his latest offensive. The fake news media, like CNN , have attacked President Trump for disputing the "scientists" who came up with the 3,000 number.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy continued in the line of praise for the bruiser. Giving up picks for a replaceable depth player doesn't make sense to me unless the Rangers see him in a bigger role this year.

We too are excited, and today we are happy to announce that we have two pairs of free tickets to give away to two lucky That's readers (scroll down for more info). Though there is still competition, it's now been toned down a notch with McQuaid's departure.

Cassidy now will likely pencil in Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo and Kevan Miller as the team's everyday-right shot defensemen.

This is Kampfer's second stint with the Bruins.

The 29-year old Kampfer was drafted 93rd overall in the 4th round of the 2007 draft by the Anaheim Ducks. He was dealt to Minnesota during the 2011-12 season. Some quick stats: Kampfer has played appeared in 166 National Hockey League games and 249 in the AHL.
