Seabrook will undergo surgery on his right shoulder and both of his hips and will miss the remainder of the campaign.
These sound like injuries that have been bothering Seabrook for quite some time, and with the Blackhawks' season looking more and more like a lost cause with each passing game, it makes sense for the veteran blueliner to go under the knife now in order to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign. However, due to the severity of the procedures he's set to undergo, it's possible that the three-time Stanley Cup champion will simply decide to call it a career. The 34-year-old, who's already been placed on long-term injured reserve, will finish the 2019-20 season having notched just three goals and four points in 32 games.
Coach Jeremy Colliton didn't have an update on Seabrook's (undisclosed) status Monday, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
The specific nature of Seabrook's issue remains a mystery, but he can be considered out indefinitely until the Blackhawks are able to provide an update on his condition. Dennis Gilbert will continue to hold on to a spot in the lineup until Seabrook's given the green light.
Seabrook (undisclosed) didn't make the trip to Winnipeg for Thursday's matchup with the Jets.
Seabrook is currently undergoing further medical evaluation in Chicago, so an update on his status should be released within the next few days. For now, the veteran blueliner can be considered out indefinitely.
Seabrook scored a goal on two shots and had two blocks in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.
Seabrook got the Blackhawks on the board midway through the third period with his third goal of the season. Seabrook had just one point in his first 16 games and watched multiple games from the press box, but he's come around a bit offensively as of late, picking up two goals and an assist over his last four games.
Seabrook scored on his lone shot and was plus-5 with three blocks in Saturday's 7-2 win over Nashville.
Seabrook's goal 1:51 into the second period put the Blackhawks ahead 3-0 and proved to be the eventual game-winner. It's been a rough go for Seabrook this season, one that has included several games in the press box as a healthy scratch, but a goal and a plus-5 rating sure look good in Saturday's box score. Seabrook's days as an upper-tier offensive catalyst are a thing of the past and he has been given a significantly lesser real-life role in 2019-20. He can be left on your league's waiver wire.
Seabrook will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's home clash against the Kings, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The veteran has been struggling to his standards this season, registering just one assist and is a minus-5 through the first nine games of the campaign. Coach Jeremy Colliton has been lukewarm on Seabrook's play thus far, and has said he needs more from the 34-year-old. The team will hope this move will ignite a turn around for Seabrook, and in his stead for Sunday, Dennis Gilbert will draw into the lineup.
Seabrook scored a power-play goal on his lone shot of the game and added four hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.
Seabrook picked up his first goal -- and point -- of the season when he drove home a loose puck from the right faceoff circle in the first period Saturday. The 34-year-old has seen his offensive production level off from his peak in recent years, but he still logs enough playing time to at least stay on the radar in fantasy leagues.
Seabrook notched two assists in Friday's 6-1 win over the Stars.
It's the veteran defenseman's first multi-point effort since Dec. 12. Seabrook only had one point (a helper) in his prior 11 games, so expecting a repeat performance in Chicago's regular-season finale Saturday is probably asking too much, but he is now two points away from his 10th career 30-point campaign.
Seabrook provided an assist on the power play in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win against the Avalanche.
Seabrook's shot attempt was deflected by Artem Anisimov and beat Philipp Grubauer, tying the game at 1 at the time. He also tossed five hits and blocked five shots in the game. Seabrook's up to five goals and 21 assists over 71 games this season, matching his 26 points from last year. He also has 110 hits and 160 blocks on the campaign.
Seabrook had three hits and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.
In 10 games in February, Seabrook has earned four assists with 19 hits, 25 blocks and 24 shots on goal. He has 23 points in 60 appearances this season altogether, and provides enough in a variety of categories to warrant a look in formats with a larger number of stats counted.
Seabrook (abdomen) will play Sunday versus the Stars, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Seabrook has missed the last three games but has shaken the injury. His point production is satisfactory lately with four points in the last eight games, and his extra efforts make him more valuable with a plus-5 rating, 16 shots on net and 19 blocked shots in that span.
Seabrook (abdomen) won't play Friday against the Avalanche, Chris Wescott of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Seabrook will miss a third straight game Friday, and although his injury isn't expected to keep him sidelined long term, the Blackhawks have yet to release an expected timetable for his recovery. The veteran blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Sunday's matchup with Dallas.
Seabrook (abdomen) didn't make the trip to Detroit for Wednesday's game, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
It will be the second straight game missed for Seabrook, who is dealing with an abdominal strain. The 33-year-old has racked up 23 points in 58 games for the Blackhawks this campaign. Expect Gustav Forsling to remain on the second power-play unit with Seabrook out.
Seabrook (abdomen) will not suit up against Ottawa on Monday.
This will be just the second game the 33-year-old has missed this season. Seabrook has five goals and 23 points, including nine coming during the power play. Look for Connor Murphy or Gustav Forsling to take his place on the second power-play unit.
Seabrook declined to waive his no-movement clause when the Blackhawks asked, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Seabrook's contract carries a salary cap hit of $6.875 million for five years after this season, and and he didn't live up to that number with just 26 points last season. He also has only has 20 points through 52 games this season. His cap figures and recent production would make him a hard man to move, but a change of scenery could be enough to right the ship for the 33-year-old blueliner. However, that's simply speculation unless Seabrook changes his mind and accepts a trade.
Seabrook (illness) returned to practice Friday, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Seabrook missed Wednesday's matchup with Nashville due to illness, but he appears to be back to 100 percent and should be good to go versus Vegas on Saturday. The blueliner has struggled to produce this season, as he has managed just one helper in his last 10 outings.
Seabrook (illness) will not dress for Wednesday's game against the Predators.
Seabrook missed the morning skate Wednesday while feeling under the weather and will cede his spot in the lineup to Henri Jokiharju, who is fresh off a gold medal win at the World Junior Hockey Championship. Given that the Blackhawks don't return to action until Saturday against the Golden Knights, Seabrook should have ample time to rest up and is a good bet to return for the weekend.
Seabrook won't participate in Wednesday's morning skate due to an illness.
Seabrook's status for Wednesday night's matchup with Nashville has yet to be determined, but he should probably be considered questionable at best. Another update on the veteran blueliner's status will undoubtedly surface prior to puck drop.
Seabrook (illness) is expected to be in the lineup Saturday against the Avalanche, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Seabrook missed Friday's practice but appears good to go ahead of a showdown with the Avs and their potent top line. The 33-year-old has posted four goals and 15 points -- along with a disappointing minus-11 rating -- in 40 games and therefore remains a risky fantasy play.
Seabrook won't practice Friday due to an illness.
Seabrook will probably still travel with the Blackhawks for Saturday's game against the Avalanche, but his inability to practice Friday leaves his status for that contest up in the air. If Seabrook's unable to go, Brandon Manning will likely draw into the lineup against the Avalanche.
