Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Misses postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid missed the final 15 games of the 2018-19 campaign due to a head injury.

McQuaid was unable to suit up during the postseason, making him a rather disappointing trade deadline addition for a team that went all in on a deep playoff run. The 32-year-old blueliner should get some offers come free agency, probably in the range of the $2.75 million he earned this season. Not exactly an offensive force, he's only reached the 15-point mark once in his career, McQuaid won't provide much in term of value in most fantasy formats.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) didn't travel to Boston with his teammates ahead of Thursday's Game 1 against the Bruins, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

McQuaid has been sidelined since the end of March with a suspected concussion, and there's still no telling when he might be ready to return. The gritty blueliner will need to be cleared to practice before getting the green light to rejoin the lineup, so he should be considered out indefinitely until that occurs.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) isn't in the projected lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against Pittsburgh.

McQuaid has been sidelined since March 30 due to a head injury and the Blue Jackets have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for his recovery. Either way, the veteran blueliner only totaled seven points in 50 appearances during the regular season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his availability.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Out for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) will not be in Sunday's lineup against the Lightning, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

As he's expected to have a concussion, McQuaid's return is still a bit of a mystery. He has no clear timetable to get back to action but his next chance will be Tuesday for Game 4.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Return up in air
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) is still without a return timetable, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Speaking to the media Saturday, Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen offered no update on McQuaid, as the Columbus defenseman remains sidelined with a suspected concussion. Kekalainen's words essentially rule out a Game 3 return for McQuaid, who has already missed the series' first two games

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Left behind
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) didn't travel with the team for Games 1 and 2 versus Tampa Bay on Wednesday and Friday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

While McQuaid is still expected to be out long term, the fact that he didn't make the trip confirms he will miss the next two games. At this point, the blueliner could be facing the prospect of missing the postseason entirely and should be considered doubtful at best when the club returns to Columbus for Games 3 and 4. In order to bolster their blue-line depth, the Jackets promoted Adam Clendening from AHL Cleveland.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Not close to returning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) has not shown signs of progress in his recovery, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

McQuaid last played on Mar. 28, and considering his slow recovery, the defenseman will likely start the playoffs on the shelf. Columbus' first game against the Lightning in Round 1 comes Wednesday.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Slated to miss final road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) isn't expected to make the journey to New York for the start of the team's two-game road trip Friday and Saturday, Jeff Svoboda of NHL.com reports.

Barring a change in that storyline, McQuaid can be ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. The Blue Jackets are in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but McQuaid's role in the run is a rather minor one, having collected just two points over 14 games since joining the squad. The playoffs fire up next Wednesday, which would mark McQuaid's next opportunity to return should Columbus secure a postseason spot.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Labeled day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) is day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

This effectively rules out McQuaid for the upcoming contest, which leaves two more regular-season games for the defenseman to possibly draw into. There are seven healthy blueliners on the active roster for Columbus, which probably buys time for the fiery competitor to get healthy ahead of the postseason.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Misses road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) didn't travel with the team to Nashville for Saturday's matchup, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

McQuaid's absence from the lineup won't come as a surprise to anybody who saw Andrew Shaw's hit on the blueliner. The 31-year-old McQuaid has tallied just two points in 14 games since joining the Jackets at the trade deadline. Given his limited offensive contributions, the defenseman is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value. With the team heading from Nashville to Buffalo for a game Sunday, McQuaid will almost certainly miss the matchup with the Sabres as well.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Takes hit to head
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (head) left Thursday's game against Montreal and is doubtful to return.

McQuaid was hit in the head by Andrew Shaw, on a play that saw the Canadiens' forward handed a minor penalty for interference. Expect another update on the defenseman's status to come ahead of Saturday's matchup with Nashville.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Generates assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid earned an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.

It's his second point in 12 games in a Blue Jackets uniform, and he has seven points total this season when factoring in his 36 appearances with the Rangers. While he has 121 hits and 88 blocked shots, his primary job is to defend, and he has minimal fantasy value due to that role and a modest average of 11:58 per game on the Blue Jackets' third pairing.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Pots game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 3-0 victory over the Hurricanes.

It's his first point in eight games since being acquired by Columbus at the trade deadline. McQuaid only has three goals and six points on the season, and the veteran knows his role as a stay-at-home rearguard -- he's only taken 23 shots in 44 games between the Rangers and Jackets.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: Will debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid's debut for the Blue Jackets will come Tuesday against Pittsburgh, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

McQuaid should bring some physicality to Columbus' blue line after being acquired from the Rangers at the trade deadline Monday. He's not a big source of offense, having recorded a mere five points in 36 games, but McQuaid can help in the PIM category, averaging nearly one per game with 33 this season.

Blue Jackets' Adam McQuaid: From New York to Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid was traded from the Rangers to the Blue Jackets for defenseman Julius Bergman and a pair of 2019 draft picks, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Along with Bergman, Columbus will send a fourth-round pick as well as a seventh-round selection in the 2019 draft to New York in exchange for McQuaid's services. This trade serves as further proof that the Blue Jackets are all in this season, as the team now has just two picks in the upcoming draft. Even though the bruising blueliner stands to help solidify Columbus' back end, McQuaid's fantasy value remains low, as he's managed just six points in 37 games this season.

Rangers' Adam McQuaid: Sitting out as precaution
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (coach's decision) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game against New Jersey, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

McQuaid is expected to be moved ahead of Monday's trade deadline, so there's no reason for the Rangers to risk his health in a meaningless game. The 32-year-old doesn't bring much offense to the table, but his four-year, $11 million contract is about to expire, making him a fantastic rental option for teams looking to add a reliable stay-at-home defender to their bottom pairing. If he's still with New York, it's safe to assume McQuaid will be held out against the Capitals on Sunday as well, but we'll circle back if anything changes on that front.

Rangers' Adam McQuaid: Won't return against Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game against the Wild due to precautionary reasons.

The specific nature of McQuaid's issue remains unclear, but it doesn't sound like something that will keep him sidelined for long. At this point, there's no reason to believe the physical blueliner won't be healthy enough to play in Saturday's matinee matchup with New Jersey, but confirmation on his status for that contest should surface prior to puck drop. He's also a strong candidate to be moved before Monday's trade deadline.

Rangers' Adam McQuaid: Pots insurance marker in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid scored his second goal of the season Sunday as part of a 4-1 win over Toronto.

McQuaid also registered a pair of hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's win. The physical blueliner is not known as a point producer and has just five points in 31 games this season.

Rangers' Adam McQuaid: Set to face Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid (undisclosed) will be in the lineup when the Rangers host Carolina on Tuesday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

The 32-year-old slots back into the lineup after missing one game with an undisclosed injury. On the season, McQuaid has just three assists in 21 games while averaging 17:19 of ice time per night. Healthy or not, the Rangers' blueliner does not belong on your fantasy roster.

Rangers' Adam McQuaid: Status uncertain Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McQuaid -- who missed Saturday's matchup with Columbus due to an undisclosed injury -- remains questionable versus Carolina on Tuesday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

McQuaid's potential absence will stretch a defensive corps that will be without Frederik Claesson (shoulder) and Neal Pionk (lower body). Recent call-up Ryan Lindgren is slated to play regardless of McQuaid's availability, which means Brendan Smith would likely be the odd man out if McQuaid does suit up.
