The Boston Bruins are busy before the draft on Friday. After trading defenseman Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames, GM Don Sweeney has re-signed defenseman Adam McQuaid to a four-year deal with an AAV of $2.75 million, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.
McQuaid, 28, is coming off a three-year deal with an AAV of $1,566,666. McQuaid has posted a negative relative Corsi every year of the six years he’s played in the NHL, including a -3.1% CF%Rel last season, which was the worst among Bruins defensemen this side of Kevan Miller and Dennis Seidenberg.
