The Rangers added some fiber and - gasp! - experience to the needy right side of the blue line by acquiring Adam McQuaid from the Bruins on Tuesday in exchange for Steven Kampfer and a fourth-round draft pick, The Post has learned.
In addition to Kampfer, Boston got a 2019 fourth-round pick and a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick for McQuaid, who spent his entire 11-year career with the Bruins.
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. 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 6-foot-4, 212-pound Canadian has 13 career goals and 53 assists for 66 points.

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.

However, the soon-to-be-32-year-old veteran has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and had likely been bumped down to eighth defenseman status after the Bruins acquired John Moore this offseason. He has one year left on his contract at a salary-cap hit of $2.75 million. "At one point, we're going to have to move on ... but it's tough to see your teammates go".
