BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins have reportedly signed defenseman Adam McQuaid to a four-year deal.
According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the deal is worth $2.75 million annually.
McQuaid, a former second round pick by the Columbus Blue Jackets, has played the last six seasons in Boston, checking in at plus-51 for his NHL career. His best year in Boston came in the 2010-11 season, when McQuaid appeared in 67 games and finished a plus-30.
He played a career-high 72 games the following season in 2011-12, but the 28-year-old blue liner has battled injuries in each of the last three seasons, limiting him to 126 games in that span.
The signing of McQuaid comes shortly after the Bruins announced they traded 22-year-old defenseman Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for a trio of 2015 draft picks.
The NHL Draft will be held Friday night and Saturday afternoon in Florida, so more moves could be on the way for the Bruins.
On 98.5 The Sports Hub, Michael Felger and Jim Murray reacted to the Adam McQuaid contract in disbelief.
