How is Adam McQuaid going to keep track of his nicknames?

WILMINGTON — Remember the days when Adam McQuaid was “Adam McQuaid?” The defenseman has done some big things this season, proving himself a reliable enough blueliner to make Mark Stuart [1] a healthy scratch for eight straight games and eventually expendable in a trade.

Yet for “‘Quaider,” as he’s more commonly known around the dressing room, he’s picked up more than experience and fighting majors this season. Matt Kalman of the Bruins Blog [2] recently slapped him with the nickname “Lone Wolf” based on the Chuck Norris film “Lone Wolf McQuade,” but fellow defenseman Andrew Ference [3] really upped the ante on Sunday. Here’s a picture that Bruins.com jack-of-all-tradesĀ John Bishop snapped Sunday of Ference’s new t-shirt [4].

Ference, who walked through the Bruins’ dressing room donning the tee, said that this was more than a light-hearted iron-on effort. He went online to customize the shirt.

“It’s high quality, huh?” Ference said with a laugh when asked about the effort put into making the shirt a reality.

McQuaid found the t-shirt amusing as well. He admitted he doesn’t quite know how he’ll keep up with all the nicknames, let alone suddenly becoming a brand name.
