Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook: Out one week

Seabrook (abdomen) will be sidelined for approximately one week.

Barring a setback, Seabrook should be healthy for the regular-season opener. Signed through 2023-24 with an annual cap hit of $6.875 million, the 33-year-old defenseman must elevate his play substantially in 2018-19 after a dismal showing a season ago. Last year, Seabrook was limited to 26 points and finished with a minus-3 rating. Age certainly appears to have caught up with the once-upon-a-time blue-line beast, and with a full no-movement clause attached to his contract (it becomes a modified no-trade clause in 2022-23), Seabrook isn't going anywhere, anytime soon.
