Bruins’ McQuaid out 3-4 weeks after Tangradi hit (w/video)

Mar 20, 2013, 5:12 PM EDT

The Boston Bruins have announced that defenseman Adam McQuaid will be out for up to a month with a shoulder injury.

“Adam sustained a shoulder strain and will return to Boston for further evaluation by the Bruins medical staff,” B’s GM Peter Chiarelli said in a statement. “It is anticipated that he may be out 3-4 weeks.”

McQuaid, 26, was hurt during Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to Winnipeg on this hit by Jets forward Eric Tangradi:

It was only McQuaid’s second shift of the game, and he appeared to be in serious discomfort before leaving the ice (and the game) for good.

McQuaid has a goal, three assists and a plus-4 rating in 25 games this season, and will now be shelved alongside a pair of injured Bruins — Chris Kelly (broken tibia) and David Krejci (lower body).’s Joe Haggerty reports there’ll be no immediate move to recall someone from AHL Providence to replace McQuaid. It’s likely that veteran defenseman Aaron Johnson will draw into the lineup.

    Ouch! At least him and Kelly will be back for the playoffs. Time to use that 7 mil for some rentals

      Unless tight wad Jacobs sold the team, they wont spend much!

    I don.t like to see anybody get hurt. Having said that with the Bruins banged up like this maybe my Canucks could beat them in a 7 game series.

      Your Canuckleheads have as much chance of winning the cup, as the Florida panthers have.

      They will be fine. Kesler is a big piece to be missing

    He wasn’t hurt, just embellishing.

    • bigbadbruins77 - Mar 20, 2013 at 7:39 PM

      So prust musty be doing the same thing?

      • habsman - Mar 20, 2013 at 7:43 PM

        How’s Boychuck? Did they arrest the sniper who shot him yet?

      Doesn’t posting this crap bore you after a while? It certainly bores the rest of us.

        Nash…it’s the only thing he’s got going on. Just once I’d like to see a relevant, coherent hockey take from him rather than the drivel he posts here, but I seriously thing it’s beyond him. Some folks don’t really understand or have a true appreciation for the sport, so they just post their homer ideology to draw attention to themselves, rather than to say something meaningful because it is beyond them. This, then, is my diagnosis of Habsman. The more you feed into his rhetoric, the more he feels validated. For a nominal fee, Habs, I can help you work through these issues, as it is what I do for a living. Your parent’s health care plan may even cover it. Lets set something up, for your own good as well as the good of the community. I’m here to help.

        That is a wonderful offer Stan, especially coming from a complete stranger.

        What do you mean when you say “nominal fee?” I would need a more detailed costing before approaching my mom in regards to health care coverage.

        And when my treatments are finished, will I be a Bruins fan? Will I remember my past allegience to Le Glorieux? Will I think of the Bruins as a clean playing team that never, never dive or embellish? Will I think of Jack Edwards as a handsome, unbiased announcer? Will I think it’s OK to cheer when an opposing player gets injured? Will I have an urge to make racist comments on social media sites when the B’s lose?

        I’m sure you understand that the answers to these types of questions are important when making a decision of this importance.

        Again, thanks for this display of kindness.

    Give Habs a break. Posting lame comments is the only thing he gets to do other than helping his mommy scrub the skids out of his undies.

    • habsman - Mar 20, 2013 at 11:14 PM

      Thanks for having my back 99, mom says hi!

    Habs has, on more than one occasion, cheered when a player has been injured or otherwise wished harm on players. And that’s on top of his true hatred for the Bruins, the city of Boston, and Americans.

    I don’t mean good natured trash talking like the beginning of this thread…not even disliking a team for their style of play. He truly, genuinely, hates and wishes harm on anybody that plays for the Bruins since he is a Habs fan and hates anybody that is from the States.

    I’m not even going to try to end with as funny comment because it really is sad and scary that people like this exist.

      I am remembering a time when his team booed the National Anthem when the Bruins were in Montreal, funny thing was they had more American born players than we did. I can only imagine what his reaction will be if the Bruin’s beat the Habs next Wednesday. I picture glorious tales of embellishment, Rat Faces, and Collie paying off the refs. And obviously something about the infamous “Boychuck Sniper”, but my favorite thing will be the witty comment about “Clod”.

        Don’t forget those wonderful fans who show up to games in “black face” to cheer on their favorite embellisher, PK Subban. (courtesy of google images)

        The Canadian anthem was booed in Yankee Stadium at Blue Jay games in the 70’s.

        Not long after your diplomats were rescued by the Canadian embasy in Iran.

        Your point? New York sucks too. Congrats on seeing Argo though!

      • habsman - Mar 21, 2013 at 2:03 PM

        Haven’t seen Argo yet.
