Adam McQuaid (lower body) didn't practice on Tuesday.

McQuaid was injured in Sunday's game against the Golden Knights after he took a puck to the leg. The Bruins will have an update on his status on Wednesday.

Adam McQuaid's status is unclear after he was struck in the leg by a shot on Sunday night.

McQuaid was down the ice in the closing seconds of the third period and he had to be helped to the locker room. He was seen walking around after the contest, so it's possible he could be fine to play Thursday night against Vancouver.

Adam McQuaid hopes that he hasn't played his last game with Boston with the expansion draft fast approaching.

"I hope not. I never thought of it that way, to be honest with you," McQuaid said. "The reality is that they're picking someone from every team. I hope that's not the case for me. I want to be back here and I've always said how much I love it here. I can't imagine playing for another team." The Bruins will have to decide who to protect with McQuaid, Kevan Miller and Colin Miller as potential candidates for Vegas. He suffered a neck injury in Game 2 of the playoffs and he wasn't able to play in the last four games of the series.

Adam McQuaid (upper body) isn't expected to play in Game 5 on Friday night.

McQuaid has already missed two games after he was hurt in Game 2 against Ottawa. Boston has a 3-1 hole to work out of in the series and they won't be getting any reinforcements on the back end.
Apr 20 - 3:48 PM

Adam McQuaid (upper body) didn't skate Tuesday and he isn't expected to play Wednesday night.

He didn't play on Monday night after he was injured in Game 2. McQuaid is listed as day-to-day.
Apr 18 - 4:35 PM

Adam McQuaid left Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Senators with an upper-body injury and did not return to the game.

If McQuaid can't dress for Game 3, the Bruins will have serious issues finding NHL quality bodies in time for Monday's game. McQuaid joins Krug, Carlo, and Colin Miller as defensemen on the shelf for the Bruins. Head coach Bruce Cassidy did mention before the game that Brandon Carlo will be back sooner rather than later but they might have to rush the rookie blueliner back before he's ready.
Apr 15 - 6:17 PM

Adam McQuaid appeared to shake off a late-game injury on Thursday night.

He left for approximately five minutes, but he was able to return. McQuaid may have hurt his leg during the third period. "I felt all right, it was good to get back out there," said McQuaid. "It was kind of an awkward hit, an awkward position ... and awkward result, yeah. Stuff happens."
Mar 31 - 8:24 AM

Don't be surprised if Adam McQuaid is the player the Bruins lose in the expansion draft to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Bruins will likely protect seven forwards, three defensemen and Tuukka Rask. Zdeno Chara must be protected as he has a no movement clause and Torey Krug is a no-brainer. That leaves one spot and the talk out of Boston is that the Bruins want to hold on to Colin Miller. That leaves McQuaid, who is the type of player Vegas' GM George McPhee likes, exposed. The draft, scheduled for June 17-20 will certainly be interesting.
Mar 19 - 8:22 AM

Adam McQuaid required approximately 25 stitches across the right side of his neck after he was cut by the skate of teammate David Backes on Saturday.

It was a scary incident, but McQuaid has been cleared to play on Monday against Ottawa. He was held out of Sunday's practice, though.
Mar 6 - 9:53 AM

Adam McQuaid contributed a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Detroit.

His first goal of the season gave Boston a 5-4 lead going into the third after the Bruins blew a 4-1 advantage. McQuaid has three points and 47 penalty minutes in 43 games this season.
Jan 19 - 8:07 AM

Adam McQuaid (upper body) will return Thursday night.

Meanwhile the Bruins will be without blueliner Colin Miller due to a lower-body injury. McQuaid is projected to play alongside Torey Krug.
Jan 12 - 3:27 PM

Adam McQuaid (upper body) is scheduled to join his teammates in Nashville on Wednesday.

He stayed in St. Louis for precautionary reasons after Tuesday's game. McQuaid's status remains uncertain for Thursday night, though.
Jan 11 - 3:56 PM

Adam McQuaid (upper body) is unlikely to return to Tuesday's game against the Blues.

McQuaid was hurt after colliding with Blues forward Patrik Berglund in the first period. He stayed down for a while before skating off on his power. We'll provide another update on his status as soon as the Bruins make one available.
Jan 10 - 9:39 PM

Adam McQuaid picked up 17 PIMs in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.

He fought William Carrier late in the first period for injuring David Backes earlier, and picked up both an instigator and game misconduct on top. Tack on his his pair of hits and those who benefit from such ruffian conduct is surely a happy camper.
