The New York Rangers have acquired defenseman Adam McQuaid from the Boston Bruins for defenseman Steven Kampfer and two draft picks.

Though he was originally drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2005, McQuaid was sent shipped out to Boston. Kampfer appeared in 38 games with the Bruins in 2010-11, producing a career-high five goals and five assists for 10 points en route to helping the team win the 2011 Stanley Cup.

For his career, he has played in 462 games registering 13 goals and 53 points.

Kampfer, 29, has played 166 career National Hockey League games.

Deadly Florence trudges inland in Carolinas with 'epic' rain, flooding
As much as 30 to 40 inches (76-102 cm) of rain could fall on coastal areas in North and SC , the National Hurricane Center said . North Carolina alone is forecast to get 9.6 trillion gallons, enough to cover the Tar Heel state to a depth of about 10 inches.

Joe Haggerty: "Adam McQuaid traded to the New York Rangers for old friend Steve Kampfer, a fourth round pick and a conditional 7th rounder".

"We had gone back and forth for a while, debating whether or not we were going to stay as-is (eight defensemen), and feel very confident about our group", general manager Don Sweeney said, "or to allow some of the younger guys to continue to push through and feel OK about our depth, minus the obvious - if we have injuries". McQuaid played in all 12 of the Bruins' playoff games.

One of the greatest catalysts for the New York Rangers' rapid decline down the Metropolitan Division standings last season was the defense. The Bruins won the Stanley Cup that season.

Part of the mission statement made by GM Jeff Gorton and new coach David Quinn is for the Rangers to be a more hard team for opponents to play - particularly in their own end.

Florence isn’t alone. More tropical storms are brewing
At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Isaac was located near latitude 14.4 North, longitude 54.1 West. However, it's not too late to prepare for Hurricane Florence - or any other storm that may move through Coweta County.

"It's a very hard day, we want to thank Adam", general manager Don Sweeney said Tuesday morning.

"It's tough to see him go".

McQuaid has one year and $2.75 million remaining on his contract.

Hurricane Florence leaves hundreds of thousands without power in North Carolina
Even though it has downgraded from hurricane strength after making landfall, the storm had killed at least five people till now. But Florence's forward movement had slowed to a crawl, and it piled on the rain in a siege that could go on all weekend long.
