The Boston Bruins opened their main training camp Tuesday morning with a surprising announcement that they'd traded 11-year veteran defenseman Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers for Steven Kampfer and two draft picks in 2019.
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. "10 years we've been together, going back to Providence", added Cassidy.
McQuaid was a member of the Bruins team that won the Stanley Cup in the 2010-2011 season. Hopefully he gets a great opportunity to play in NY. Sad to see you go Quaider and all the best in NY. "We'll miss him, as a person and as a teammate". "When you look around the room, you want guys like him ..."
"Some teams reached out to me (about acquiring McQuaid) right around that July 1 time frame, so I sort of had things I'd explored". "He's a great friend, and as a teammate he'd do anything for the team and for each individual player".

Paul Manafort reportedly close to Mueller plea deal to avoid second trial
The president's comments via Twitter made many believe that he was thinking about pardoning Mueller. That could be done at a court hearing Friday. "The reason: the President did nothing wrong".
The Bruins made the announcement before flying to China for two exhibition games.
The soon-to-be-30-year-old Kampfer has essentially been a depth defenseman throughout his career, most recently with the Rangers and before that with the Panthers and Wild. The five-foot-11, 195-pound blueliner was originally selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the fourth round of the 2007 draft before being traded to the Bruins on March 2, 2010.
Just last season, McQuaid had just one goal, three assists, and 62 penalty minutes in 38 games played after returning from a broken right fibula suffered at the start of the season.
"We are very excited about the two teams we have this year, just as we thought the teams last year were a great fit for the China event", David Proper, the NHL's executive vice president of media and worldwide strategy, recently told That's.
