The Rangers have made a minor trade, acquiring defenseman Adam McQuaid from Boston in exchange for Steven Kampfer, a 4th round pick, and a conditional 7th round pick. McQuaid has one year remaining on his deal at $2.75 million.
This appears to be a bit of a locker room trade. McQuaid has a reputation for being tough to play against and a good locker room guy. For this year, that’s all the Rangers care about. In terms of on-ice production, this doesn’t move the needle much.
