|Assets:||Plays in control and without a lot of panic in his own end. Also displays a great combination of size, strength and skating ability. Logs big minutes against the opposition's best. Owns a very big shot and is a solid passer. Has both offensive acumen and shutdown capability.|
|Flaws:||Doesn't use his size (6-3, 221 pounds) nearly enough to intimidate opposing players, mainly because he's not an overly aggressive type by nature. Lacks high-end offensive skills, aside from his big point shot. Can at times leave himself exposed to the big hit.|
|Career Potential:||Excellent all-round defenseman.|

Brent Seabrook struggling offensively | 05/20/2013 7:21 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook has yet to garner a point in seven playoff games.
ImpactSeabrook is one of only two Blackhawks who have played in every playoff game to be held off the scoresheet as Michal Rozsival also is pointless, but Rozsival is plus-six while Seabrook is struggling with a minus-two rating. Seabrook had eight goals and 20 points in 47 regular season games so his fantasy owners in the playoffs hope a break out game is around the corner.
Seabrook : We'll keep loss in perspective | 05/19/2013 6:05 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook said that the Chicago Blackhawks will keep Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday in perspective.
ImpactChicago and the Red Wings are now tied at one game apiece after the Blackhawks lost at home Saturday. "We're pissed off about this afternoon but at the end of the day it's one game," Seabrook said. "Both teams would be stupid if they thought they'd come in here and either team would win four straight. It's a series. We knew it would be a battle. Obviously over the years of playing these guys, we know it's going to be a hard, tough series. We have to prepare better for Monday."
Chicago power play jumps 5 spots on weekend | 04/22/2013 6:37 AM
NewsThe Chicago Blackhawks power play went from 21st overall to 16th on the weekend, courtesy of a 4-7 weekend.
ImpactBrent Seabrook scored twice on Saturday and both were with the man-advantage, boosting the Blackhawks five spots in NHL rankings. "I liked the power play. We had good motion, good movement," coach Joel Quenneville said. "It's nice to see the finished product. It was definitely a sore point for a stretch of games here, so it's nice to see something come out of it on the power-play side."
Brent Seabrook gets two goals in SO loss | 04/20/2013 11:39 PM
NewsBrent Seabrook potted two goals in Chicago's 3-2 shootout loss versus the Coyotes on Saturday night.
ImpactThe goals raised the defenseman's total to eight on the year, and ended a skid of 11 games without one. Nick Leddy had two assists, while Patrick Kane chipped in with one.
Brent Seabrook has five points in five games | 03/27/2013 8:06 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook scored a goal in Chicago's 2-0 win Tuesday.
ImpactSeabrook has been hot lately with two goals and five points in his last five games. Overall, he has 16 points in 31 games in 2013 and we think that's a pace he can maintain through what's left of the 2013 campaign.
Brent Seabrook returns with a vengeance | 03/19/2013 6:52 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook had a goal and an assist after being benched for most of the second period Monday.
ImpactGabriel Landeskog scored a shorthanded goal as he beat Seabrook badly with 34 seconds to go in the first period. He did not get back on the ice until there was 7:23 left in the second and then he sparkled offensively. Seabrook now has five goals and 14 points, not too shabby for the defenseman.
Brent Seabrook calls himself slug defenseman | 03/02/2013 10:19 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook's goal in overtime kept the Blackhawks' record-breaking streak alive as they edged the Blue Jackets 4-3 Friday night at the United Center to remain without a regulation loss this season.
ImpactAt 18-0-3, the Hawks keep piling up the points, securing 39 of a possible 42 this season. Seabrook took a pass from Jonathan Toews three minutes, 23 seconds into overtime and beat Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason for the game-winner. "(Toews) is good - he's a hell of a player," Seabrook said, giving credit to his captain. "He usually likes to shoot low and I think (Columbus goaltender Steve) Mason was probably thinking he was going to shoot it. (Toews) had a slug defenseman (in me) going down on the off side so he made a great pass. I don't think the Blue Jackets defenseman, Mason or I expected it to come. Somehow he saw me and made a great pass. He didn't look at me once and I didn't yell. He's pretty good in those situations so I just let him do his thing. I don't think I shot the puck, it was such a hard pass it hit my stick and just bounced in."
Seabrook gets OT winner as Hawks stay hot | 03/02/2013 12:15 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook recorded the game-winning goal as the Blackhawks kept up their winning ways with a 4-3 overtime victory versus the Blue Jackets on Friday night.
ImpactThe winner was an easy one with half the net vacant, set up with a great no-look, cross-ice pass from Jonathan Toews after he faked the shot. Seabrook now has nine points on the season and is a pretty solid blueline option. Viktor Stalberg, Bryan Bickell and Patrick Sharp had the other goals in the victory. Chicago is now 18-0-3 on the year.
Brent Seabrook gets 21:17 minutes in return | 02/23/2013 10:59 AM

ImpactHe returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out Tuesday's contest. Seabrook is among the league leaders in blocked shots this season, with 44, and he has also contributed eight points in 15 games.
Brent Seabrook won't play Tuesday night | 02/19/2013 1:55 PM
NewsBrent Seabrook has a lower-body injury and will not play Tuesday night.
Tracey Myers on Twitter
ImpactSeabrook was hit below the belt by a Drew Doughty slapshot Sunday afternoon, although coach Joel Quenneville would only say it was hit "somewhere." The injury is likely minor and Seabrook could be back in the lineup Friday night. Seabrook is off to a strong start this season with eight points in 15 games and his hits make him an even stronger play in expanded leagues.
Brent Seabrook picks up two points Sunday | 02/18/2013 10:34 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook scored a goal and registered an assist in Chicago's 3-2 victory Sunday.
ImpactSeabrook also blocked five shots to give him a league-high 44 this season. He's off to a solid start offensively with eight points in 15 games and he's an even better fantasy option in leagues that use some additional defensive categories like hits and, of course, blocked shots.
Seabrook leads league in blocked shots | 01/24/2013 9:36 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook has a league-leading 13 blocked shots in just three games.
Impact"I don't know who was counting them," Seabrook said. "Some of them just sort of grazed off me in good spots. It's one of those things where I'm trying to get in the right lanes and get in the way. A few pucks hit me. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing." Seabrook won't maintain that rate of blocked shots, but he will probably end up averaging about two per game. He's been more than willing to use his body to stop shots during his NHL career, which makes it all the more remarkable that he's played in at least 78 games in each of his previous six seasons.
Seabrook scores on the power play Wednesday | 01/23/2013 10:17 AM
NewsBrent Seabrook netted his first goal of the season on Wednesday.
ImpactSeabrook has reached the 30-point milestone in each of his last three campaigns, but of course he's not expected to continue that trend through the 48-game season. Still, he should get plenty of time with the man advantage and be a solid addition to any fantasy squad.
