Adam McQuaid (born October 12, 1986, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL), wearing the number 54. Previously this season he played with Boston's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins wearing number 27.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

McQuaid played major junior hockey with the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) for four seasons. After scoring 19 points in his second season with the Wolves in 2004–05, McQuaid was selected in the 2nd round, 55th overall, by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He returned to the OHL and, in his final season, helped lead the Wolves to the OHL Final against the Plymouth Whalers; the Wolves were defeated in six games.

In the off-season, McQuaid was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a fifth-round pick. He was immediately signed by Boston to a three-year, entry-level contract.

He was assigned to Boston's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins in 2007–08 and scored 9 points in his professional rookie season.

He scored his first NHL goal on February 7, 2010, a game-winner against goaltender Jaroslav Halak in a 3–0 win against the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre.
