Brad Marchand Heaps Praise On Adam McQuaid After Defenseman’s Trade To 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

Over his nine-year National Hockey League career with the Bruins, McQuaid has played in 462 games, tallying 13 goals and 53 assists for 66 points.

The 31-year-old was limited to just 38 games this past season, putting up one goal and three assists. In two seasons with NY, he appeared in 32 games registering one goal and three points.

For his career, he has played in 462 games registering 13 goals and 53 points.

The Boston Bruins have traded fan favorite and renowned tough guy Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers.

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.

One of the greatest catalysts for the New York Rangers' rapid decline down the Metropolitan Division standings last season was the defense.

McQuaid spent nine years with the Bruins and made his bones as a tough third-pairing defender who was beloved in the locker room, in part because of his willingness to stand up for his teammates on the ice. He helped the team win the 2011 Stanley Cup and make it to the 2013 final.

Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy, who joined the organization as an assistant coach at AHL Providence a year after McQuaid arrived, saw most of McQuaid's development, too.

"It's tough to see him go", he said.

"It's a very hard day, we want to thank Adam", general manager Don Sweeney said Tuesday morning.

The veteran defenseman was traded to the Rangers on Tuesday. The Rangers also sent a fourth-round draft pick in 2019, plus a conditional seventh-rounder.

Not to mention he has one year remaining on his current deal, which totals $2.75 million.
