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.
A second-round pick (No. 55) by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2005, McQuaid has 66 points (13 goals, 53 assists) in 462 National Hockey League games, all with the Bruins. He played in just 38 games a year ago and put up four points. He had 15 points (three goals, 12 assists).

For sure, he would be a point of reference for me. "In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play". While promoted Cardiff are yet to win this season, Sarri said they will provide a tough test.
The Rangers desperately needed experience on the defense, and they got it in the form of Adam McQuaid.
General manager Don Sweeney and head coach Bruce Cassidy on Tuesday both expressed how hard it was to move the 31-year-old, and it appears the sentiment is shared amongst the players, especially those who played with McQuaid for a long time.

Who do you want me to fight next? A fight with Kell Brook remains hotly anticipated and fight fans across the country will be praying it can be made next.
McQuaid spent the last nine seasons in Boston, as he was a member of the 2010-11 Stanley Cup Champion team. In that year he was a plus 30, appearing in 67 games for the Bruins. "10 years we've been together, going back to Providence", said head coach Bruce Cassidy on the Bruins verified Twitter account. He had two assists in 10 games with Boston the following season. Today was a tough morning. Sad to see you go Quaider and all the best in NY.
Veteran forward Brad Marchand is one of them, gushing over the defenseman as a player and a person after the deal was made. The Bruins also acquired two picks (a fourth-rounder and a conditional seventh-rounder) in next June's draft.
