Adam McQuaid Healthy Again

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

It’s been a couple of years since Adam McQuaid was able to play his punishing stay-at-home defenseman game without worrying about some health issue or another.

Two years ago, it was returning from a blood clot that left him in a weakened state entering the season. Last season, he was dogged by lower body problems throughout a season that ended for him in January....

“I think he came out and tried to make a statement that he’s ready to play, and that he wants to be here,” said coach Claude Julien. “I thought he played a really strong game. I give him high marks for his first game back.”...

That’s great news for the Bruins in that they may be getting back a player that finished with 15 points and a plus-30 three seasons ago as big, strong bottom-pairing defenseman It’s also a positive development if the B’s opt to deal him from their D-man surplus now that he’s shown he’s once again healthy.
