Aside from their signing of Benoit Pouliot and their trade for Joe Corvo, the Bruins’ off-season has been relatively quiet for the most part. Today, however, is a different story as the Black and Gold signed defenseman Adam McQuaid to a 3-year contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

In his first full season with Boston, the 24-year old tallied 15 points (3 goals, 12 assists) in 67 games during the regular season and had a plus/minus rating of plus-30, good for second best behind captain Zdeno Chara and first among rookies in 2010-11. During the postseason, McQuaid tallied four points (all assists) and had a key moment against the Habs in Game 7 tallying a secondary assist on Nathan Horton’s game-winner — and series clinching goal — in overtime.

McQuaid and GM Peter Chiarelli are currently taking part in a conference call with members of the media. In the meantime, be sure to view The Hub of Hockey’s report card on McQuaid from yesterday.
