McQuaid traded to New York Rangers

In return, Boston acquires defenseman - and one-time Bruin - Steven Kampfer, along with a 2019 fourth-round pick and a conditional seventh-round pick.

He returned in mid-January and posted one goal and three assists with 62 PIM in 15:42 of average ice time while partnered primarily with Torey Krug or Matt Grzelcyk.

The 31-year old McQuaid was drafted 55th overall in the 2nd round of the 2005 draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The 6-foot-4, 212 pound defenseman made his first National Hockey League appearance with the Bruins in 2009-10. The Bruins won the Stanley Cup that season. 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.

Since then, Kampfer spent two seasons in the AHL and then played in 73 National Hockey League games with the Florida Panthers from 2014-17.
