The Boston Bruins moved on from one of their longer-tenured players, trading defenseman Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

McQuaid, 31, has spent his entire 11-year professional career with the Boston Bruins organization since being acquired by the team from the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2007. Kampfer appeared in 38 games with the Bruins in 2010-11, producing a career-high five goals and five assists for 10 points en route to helping the team win the 2011 Stanley Cup. McQuaid played in all 12 of his team's playoff games, getting 13:19 per while recording a goal and assist while the Bruins were knocked out in the second round by Tampa Bay.

A native of Ann Arbor, MI, Kampfer has played in 166 career National Hockey League contests over five National Hockey League seasons with the Bruins, Minnesota Wild, Florida Panthers and Rangers.

The Boston Bruins have traded fan favorite and renowned tough guy Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers.

Bruins GM Don Sweeney made the announcement Tuesday morning. In that year he was a plus 30, appearing in 67 games for the Bruins. "10 years we've been together, going back to Providence".

We too are excited, and today we are happy to announce that we have two pairs of free tickets to give away to two lucky That's readers (scroll down for more info). Giving up picks for a replaceable depth player doesn't make sense to me unless the Rangers see him in a bigger role this year.

McQuaid, 32 next month, faced the likely prospect of making more contributions off the ice in the coming season.

In addition to the veteran defender, the Rangers added in a fourth and a conditional seventh rounder.

McQuaid carries a cap hit of $2.75.
