Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brent Seabrook
Brent Seabrook was born April 20, 1985 in Richmond, British Columbia. The first round, 14th overall selection of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Seabrook is a graduate of the WHLs Lethbridge Hurricanes.

An offensive defenseman, Seabrook played parts of five seasons in Lethbridge registering 176 points (39-137-176) while helping Canada capture gold at the 2005 WJC. Following a successful junior career, Seabrook went on to make his professional debut with Norfolk of the AHL in the spring of 2004-05 before going on to make his NHL debut with Chicago during the 2005-06 season.

With the Blackhawks, Seabrook emerged as one of the premier two-way defenseman in the National Hockey League, often paired on the blueline with partner Duncan Keith.

On the international stage, Seabrook was part of the Canadian team that captured gold on home soil at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Following Canada's Olympic triumph in Vancouver, Seabrook returned to the Blackhawks with a chance to achieve a rare double - Olympic gold and a Stanley Cup Championship in the same calendar year. In the 2010 playoffs, the Blackhawks survived a first round scare from the Nashville Predators, a hard fought battle with the Vancouver Canucks and steamrolled over the San Jose Sharks en route to the Stanley Cup Final where they would take on the upstart Philadelphia Flyers.

The Blackhawks would defeat the Flyers in six games, winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1961, with Seabrook providing essential leadership from the back end.

Seabrook and the Blackhawks would return to their championship-calibre play during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, rolling through the NHL's regular season and capturing the Presidents' Trophy.

The playoffs were more of the same and though pushed to the limit by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round, the Blackhawks would prevail and eventually earn the fifth Stanley Cup title in franchise history, the second in Seabrook's career.

After being knocked out in the Western Conference Finals in 2014 by the eventual Stanley Cup Champion, Los Angeles Kings, the Seabrook would return to the Stanley Cup Final in 2015 with the Blackhawks where they would defeat the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games. This would be the third Stanley Cup in six years for Seabrook and the Blackhawks.
