VIDEO: One-on-one with Adam McQuaid of the Boston Bruins

Adam McQuaid has proven himself a valuable part of the Boston Bruins backend this post-season, averaging 15:10 of ice time per game. But McQuaid isn’t too concerned with the amount of ice time he gets – the 26-year-old is just happy he can still play at all. In October of 2012, doctors discovered a blood clot under his collarbone that not only threatened McQuaid's career, but his life as well.

McQuaid underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome shortly after the clot was found and fortunately for him and the Bruins, the bruising defenseman made a full recovery.

THN’s Ken Campbell caught up with McQuaid to talk about his ordeal.
