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 Blueshirts sent defenseman Steven Kampfer, a 2019 fourth-round draft pick and a conditional seventh-round pick to Boston in the deal. They allowed the fourth most goals of any team, 268.

Since then, Kampfer spent two seasons in the AHL and then played in 73 National Hockey League games with the Florida Panthers from 2014-17.

The Ann Arbor, Michigan native played four seasons of collegiate hockey at the University of Michigan from 2006-10 prior to turning pro.

Kampfer, who turns 30 in late September, returns to the Bruins after being drafted in 2007 and making his National Hockey League debut with them in 2010. Over his nine-year National Hockey League career with Boston, McQuaid has appeared in 462 games, totaling 13 goals and 53 assists for 66 points with 652 penalty minutes.

Adam McQuaid's ceiling is a bottom pairing defenseman. McQuaid is considered a good possession player with CF percentages north of 50 each of the last two years.

He returned in mid-January and posted one goal and three assists with 62 PIM in 15:42 of average ice time while partnered primarily with Torey Krug or Matt Grzelcyk.
