    McQuaid's SCF Blog: FROM PEI TO NHL

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=673971&navid=DL|NHL|home

    "Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid is already a veteran of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including winning a Stanley Cup title with the Bruins in 2011 and approaching 50 postseason games for his career before his 27th birthday."


    "I wasn't always the best player growing up. I was lucky they let me play on the Triple-A teams and stuff. I don't know if I would say I was a star. I just took each level as it came. I was 15 and I started getting a little bit of attention from scouts at the major-junior level. For me, at that age, that was my whole focus, wanting to get drafted to move on and play major-junior. There were a few guys from the island that went on to play major-junior that I really looked up to. I got drafted to Sudbury of the Ontario Hockey League and, at 16, moved away from home. That wasn't easy coming from a close-knit family and a small town. That was a tough decision but something I needed to do to give me the chance to play major-junior. Fortunately, I was able to make the team and my NHL Draft year was my second year and I got a little bit of attention from scouts again and then I was drafted to Columbus. It was probably at that point, when I got drafted to Columbus that your focus shifts and you start thinking that maybe you can make a go of it and start working toward that."

     

    Glad this kid is a Bruins and will be for a long time.

    It says that he was traded to Boston for a 5th round pick....I wonder who that turned out to be for the Blue Jackets ?  I bet they would like a do over on that one...Was that PC's trade ? Glad he's on the Bruins !

    Great post San Dog. For a guy who plays so tough McQuaid has some sense of humility.

    If I've done the digging right, it turned out to be Brent Regner.  Not even a cup of coffee in the NHL, it seems.
