The New York Rangers acquired defenseman Adam McQuaid from the Boston Bruins in exchange for defenseman Steven Kampfer, a fourth-round pick in 2019, and a conditional seventh-round pick, the team announced.

The 31-year old McQuaid was drafted 55th overall in the 2nd round of the 2005 draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. A staple on the Boston line since his rookie (and Stanley Cup-winning) 2010-11 season, McQuaid played in only 38 games last season, missing almost three months after suffering a broken right fibula while blocking a shot on October 19. The 6-foot-4, 212-pound defenseman appeared in 178 AHL games with Providence from 2007-10, compiling eight goals and 26 assists for 34 points with 280 penalty minutes. In his career, he has played in 166 games and has 10 goals and 16 assists. Last season's development of rookies Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk into full-time players, combined with the July 1 addition of free agent defenseman John Moore, gave the B's eight National Hockey League defenseman.
