McQuaid in the fold for three more years

By Nick Tavares

Through bruising play and the ability to make the smart, quick hit, Prince Edward Island’s own Adam McQuaid earned himself a new contract with the Bruins.

The 24-year-old defenseman played well in his first full season in the NHL, picking up 15 points in 67 games in the regular season, along with a plus/minus of 30 that had him among the league’s leaders.

McQuaid kept it up on the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup, usually playing alongside the now-departed Tomas Kaberle. With the rest of the defensive corps in line for a return, look for McQuaid to play alongside newcomer Joe Corvo, at least to start the season.

Next in line for a new deal, as the popular thinking goes, is everyone’s favorite restricted free agent, left wing Brad Marchand.
