Bruins Trade McQuaid To Rangers

Longtime Bruin Adam McQuiad has been shipped to the New York Rangers for Steven Kampfer, a fourth round pick and a conditional seventh-round pick.

McQuiad quickly became the odd man out this year as the Bruins have high expectations for their young defenseman and they added another solid veteran d-man in John Moore. McQuaid was a fan favorite in Boston and was known for his hard hitting and brute like play style. Although he was never a top end defenseman or a real point scorer he was loved for his grit factor in Boston. Unfortunately, for McQuaid, Boston became full of young talented defenseman and McQuaid’s contract and his play style became expendable. McQuaid will join some of his former teammates in New York, getting to play alongside Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey once again. McQuaid has one year left on his deal and the 31 year old will be a free agent at the end of the season.

The Bruins will be getting defenseman Steven Kampfer in return and a fourth round pick and a conditional seventh. Kampfer made his NHL debut with the Bruins back in 2010. Kampfer has served mostly as a fill-in defenseman for multiple teams over the years and will stay in that role with the Bruins. Kampfer is 29 years old and he will be a free agent at the end of the season. Kampfer has appeared in 166 career NHL games and has tallied 26 points.

This move creates $2.1 million dollars in cap space for the Bruins and gives them a total of just over $5 million in cap space for the year. Which could make space for the Bruins to sign Rick Nash to a new deal or to look at acquiring a new winger via trade.
