Feb 2 - 9:33 AM

Adam McQuaid (upper body) hasn't resumed skating yet.

There was no timetable in place for his return last week and that probably won't change until he gets back on the ice. McQuaid has missed the past six games with an upper-body ailment.

Adam McQuaid (upper body) doesn't have a timetable in place for his return.

He won't join the Bruins on their current road trip. McQuaid appeared to be knocked out when he was hit from behind by Washington's Zach Sill on Jan. 5.
Jan 13 - 9:36 AM

Adam McQuaid (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

McQuaid suffered the injury when he was smashed into the boards from behind by Washington's Zach Sill on Tuesday. McQuaid's head went into the glass, so while the Bruins are classifying his issue as upper-body, it doesn't seem unreasonable to be concerned about the possibility that the specific problem is related to his head.
Jan 7 - 12:02 PM

Adam McQuaid was injured Tuesday early in the second period when he was hit from behind by Washington's Zach Sill.

The side of McQuaid’s head went into the glass and he needed some assistance to get off the ice after he was down for several minutes. He wasn't able to return and the Bruins didn't have an update on his status after the match.

Adam McQuaid (undisclosed) skated Monday morning, but it's unclear if he'll play against Nashville.

Adam McQuaid was injured on a blocked shot this past Saturday against Vancouver.

Adam McQuaid likes the depth on the Bruins blue line.

"I think we're really deep on the blue line," McQuaid said. "We have a lot of guys that can come in and play, and we're really fortunate that way, so I think it's an opportunity for a lot of guys. I think it's something where if you're playing well, you’re going to get the chance to do more. So I'm going to hopefully compete and be able to give myself the best opportunity." McQuaid signed a new four-year deal to stay in Boston earlier in the off-season.

Adam McQuaid has agreed to a four-year, $11 million with the Boston Bruins.

Not to turn the theme of the day into being hard on Boston, but that's a lot of money to throw at a 28-year-old bottom-two defenseman that has only reached the 70 games played mark once in his career. It's particularly eyebrow raising given the Bruins' rough cap situation that just led to them trading blueliner Dougie Hamilton for a collection of draft picks. That aside, McQuaid has an opportunity to play a bigger role with Boston with Hamilton gone and Zdeno Chara moving further into the twilight of his career. He isn't much help offensively, but fantasy owners should note that he is a source of PIM as he was charged with 85 in 63 games last season.

Of all the Bruins' unrestricted free agents, Adam McQuaid is the most likely to re-sign in Boston.

The Bruins like McQuaid's toughness and character and are trying to figure out a way to bring him back. That might involve trading another player to create cap room. Stay tuned.

Adam McQuaid can become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

He would like to stay in Boston, where he has played his entire NHL career, but he will probably have to take less money to do so because the Bruins don't have much room to maneuver under the salary cap. In 63 games last season, McQuaid had seven points, 85 penalty minutes and 141 hits.

Adam McQuaid will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against Calgary.

The 28-year-old has just one goal and four points in 37 games this season. He is more of a physical defenseman than an offensive force. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues. McQuaid is capable of piling up penalty minutes but not much else.

Adam McQuaid will play Saturday night against the Islanders despite taking a puck to his right ear in practice Friday.

McQuaid has a knack for getting hurt in strange ways. That said, he's a tough cookie and will suit up against the Isles in a key matchup Saturday evening despite sporting a pretty ugly bruise on the right side of his face.

Adam McQuaid was struck by a high stick from New York's Kevin Hayes during the second period.

The Boston blueliner left the ice clutching his eye, but he returned in the third with a gash just under his left eye. It's a good thing he wasn't seriously injured on the play. Hayes was given a double minor.
