  • Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook: Struggling to score
    By RotoWire Staff

    Seabrook has only tallied two assists in his last 12 games. Seabrook's lack of production is undeniably disconcerting, but he's still averaging over three minutes of ice time on the man advantage per game, and the Blackhawks have been struggling to score as a team of late, so there's reason to believe his offensive output will trend upward sooner rather than later. The 32-year-old blueliner's next opportunity to make his mark on the scoresheet will come Saturday against the Wild.

  • Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook: Mired in funk
    By RotoWire Staff

    Seabrook hasn't collected a point since generating one goal and two helpers against the Penguins on Opening Night. For what it's worth, the B.C. native does have 13 blocked shots on the young season, though in hindsight, his brilliant showing in the opener looks like a tease. Seabrook has averaged 44 points over the last two years, so expect his rate of offensive production to spike soon enough; he's too well-rounded a player to be held down for too long.

  • Seabrook contributed a goal and two assists in Thursday's season-opening 10-1 win over the Penguins. Seabrook displayed his usual knack for jumping up into the play at the right time, though it wasn't exactly difficult to make those reads with Chicago dominating possession and outshooting Pittsburgh 44-29. The 32-year-old blueliner looks poised for a fifth consecutive season over 30 points after averaging exactly 40 in each of the last four.

  • The Blackhawks were forced to protect Seabrook ahead of Wednesday's expansion draft due to his no-movement clause, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Chicago likely would have left Seabrook exposed if not for his no-movement clause, as the blueliner's $6.875 million cap hit has become something of a problem for the cash-strapped Blackhawks in recent seasons. The 2003 first-round pick is still a quality top-four defenseman for the 'Hawks, but his declining defensive play has made it clear that the team likely overpaid when they signed him to a huge eight-year, $55 million deal in 2015. Seabrook's bloated contract has made it nearly impossible for Chicago to move him via trade, so he'll likely remain with the club for the foreseeable future unless the Blackhawks are willing to package him with picks and prospects to get him off the books.

  • Seabrook will not be playing in Worlds, citing that his wife is due to give birth in two weeks, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. The veteran blueliner was good for three goals and 39 assists in 79 regular-season games, but didn't record a point as the Blackhawks were swept in the first round. Seabrook does add a significant defensive presence, though, recording 111 hits and 147 blocked shots.
