The Boston Bruins have traded defenseman Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers for defenseman Steven Kampfer, a 2019 fourth-round pick, and a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick. His best season came in 2010-11, when he had 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) and finished fifth in the National Hockey League with a plus-30 rating.

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

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.

Entering the upcoming season, Boston already had three right-handed defenseman in their starting lineup (Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo and Kevan Miller), which made it hard to envision McQuaid seeing much playing time. In 2010-11, the same year the team won the Stanley Cup, McQuaid became a mainstay on the back end.

"It's a very hard day.", Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said. Today was a tough morning.

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

Kampfer played in 32 games over two seasons with the Rangers, registering one goal and two assists.

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.
