2018 Fantasy Outlook
McQuaid remains off the fantasy radar in leagues that don't factor in hits, blocked shots and penalty minutes, but the 31-year-old's rugged play and willingness to stand up for his teammates continue to add a useful dimension to the blue-line corps when there's a spot for him in gameday lineups. McQuaid - who logged one goal and four points through 38 games in 2017-18 -- was acquired by the Rangers via trade just before the start of the season and should provide some solid blue line depth.

$Selected in the second round (55th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Signed a multi-year contract after being acquired by the Bruins via trade in May of 2007.

McQuaid (lower body) was placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
ANALYSIS
Considering McQuaid has already missed the Rangers' last four outings, it's all but guaranteed the club used a retroactive designation, which would make him eligible to be activated as soon as possible. Even if he was designated for IR as of Monday, the blueliner was recently downgraded to week-to-week, which will probably keep him sidelined until Nov. 12 against the Canucks at the earliest anyway.

When healthy, which is not always a given, McQuaid is a physical presence on the Boston blue line. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder is coming off a 2016-17 campaign in which he logged two goals and 10 points to go along with 71 PIM in 77 games. While his size, grit and willingness to stand up for his teammates are assets to his team in real terms, McQuaid is only on the fantasy radar in the deepest of leagues -- specifically, formats where the 30-year-old’s hits (157) and blocks (144) factor into the scoring.
At 6-foot-4, 212 pounds McQuaid brings a rugged presence to the Bruins' blue line, but that doesn't translate to much fantasy value in most formats due to his limited upside on offense. McQuaid, who turns 30 on Oct. 12, is coming off a 2015-16 season in which he recorded one goal and nine points to go along with 89 PIM In 64 games. In that span he also recorded 142 hits and 121 blocked shots.
McQuaid, who recorded one goal and seven points in 63 games for the Bruins in 2014-15, to go along with 85 PIM, is off the radar in most fantasy formats, but his size, rugged play, and sound positional hockey are assets to the team’s blue line when he is healthy. There’s the rub; whether it was a product of his style of hockey, bad luck, or simply a combo of the two, McQuaid has been a frequent visitor to training room over his NHL career. After having signed McQuaid to a four-year, $11 million contract this offseason, the B’s -- who bid adieu to young blue line cog Dougie Hamilton in June -- are clearly banking on the 28-year-old holding up much better in 2015-16.
McQuaid's 2013-14 season was derailed by injuries, as the rugged blueliner finished up the campaign with six points and 69 PIM in 30 games. While McQuaid isn't much of a factor offensively, he brings size and a sound positional brand of defense to the Bruins’ deep and balanced backline corps.
McQuaid isn't much of a factor on the offensive side of things, having recorded just four points in 32 games last season to go along with 60 PIMs. That said, he brings size and rugged play to the table for the B’s, while playing a sound positional brand of defense.
With 10 points in 72 games, McQuaid wasn't much of a factor on offense this past season, but he's a big and rugged player whose solid stay-at-home work is an asset to the Bruins. Over the past two seasons, he's a combined plus-46.
McQuaid is not much of an offensive threat (15 points in 67 games this past season), but he plays tough, sound positional hockey and continues to improve, with a plus-30 rating in 2010-11 to show for it.
McQuaid held his own when injuries hit the Bruins' blue line in 2009-10, but he'll need to defend his role as the team's No. 7 defenseman come training camp.
A stay-at-home defender, McQuaid provides the B's organization with some blue line depth, but right now the numbers are stacked against him with regards to seeing regular duty with the big club.
The former Columbus draft pick has impressed Coach Claude Julien with his steady play, but the numbers are stacked against McQuaid for now.
McQuaid was assigned to Providence of the American Hockey League in Sept. 2007.
Second-round pick in 2005 is a few years away from a crack at the NHL roster.
Fast and tough, McQuaid is a potential top-four defenseman once he gets up to speed in the pro game. He's fresh out of junior hockey, though, and is a few seasons away from being ready for the NHL.
