Adam was selected in the 2nd round (43rd overall) in the 2003 OHL Priority Selection when he was 17 years old. He was undrafted by the OHL the previous season.

Adam returned to the OHL and, in his final season, helped lead the Wolves to the OHL Final against the Plymouth Whalers; the Wolves were defeated in six games.

In the off-season, Adam was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a fifth-round pick. He was immediately signed by Boston to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Adam was assigned to Boston's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins in 2007–08 and scored 9 points in his professional rookie season.

On February 7, 2010, Adam scored his first NHL goal, a game-winner against goaltender Jaroslav Halak in a 3–0 win against the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre.

During Game 4 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, Pierre McGuire termed him, "one tough hombre." In that same final, McQuaid won his first Stanley Cup.
