Rangers acquire defenceman Adam McQuaid from Bruins

Rangers acquire defenceman Adam McQuaid from Bruins”

The Blueshirts sent defenseman Steven Kampfer, a 2019 fourth-round draft pick and a conditional seventh-round pick to Boston in the deal.

With the trade, the Rangers added some much-needed strength and experience to the right side of their blue line. NY boast Kevin Shattenkirk, Tony DeAngelo, and Neal Pionk on that side of the ice. Lefties Brendan Smith and Fredrik Claesson are also options on their off side for head coach David Quinn's squad that will open training camp on Friday.

He knows how to hold his own in fisticuffs being coined, "one tough hombre".

The 31-year-old was limited to just 38 games this past season, putting up one goal and three assists.

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 six-foot-four, 212-pound defenceman has recorded 13 goals and 53 assists for 66 points with 652 penalty minutes in 462 games.

This is the second trade between the two clubs in recent months with the Rangers shipping Rick Nash to the Bruins at February's trade deadline. The Bruins won the Stanley Cup that season. In 166 career games, the MI native has 10 goals and 16 assists. He carries a $2.75 million salary cap hit.

This will be Steven's second stint with the Bruins, as he started his National Hockey League career in 2010 with Boston before being shipped to the Minnesota Wild at the 2012 trade deadline in exchange for defenseman Greg Zanon.

Adam McQuaid's ceiling is a bottom pairing defenseman. He's never played more than 47 games in an National Hockey League season.

The 29-year old Kampfer was drafted 93rd overall in the 4th round of the 2007 draft by the Anaheim Ducks.

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.
