Brent Seabrook, 34, was such a special player on defense. Mr. Overtime, Mr. Game 7, or whatever you want to call him, has done some great things in the playoffs.
Drafted in 2003, Seabrook is a 3-time all-star and most importantly, a 3-time Stanley Cup Champion. Last season, Seabrook scored his 100th career goal and now has 460 points during his 14-years in Chicago.
Seabrook gets a bad rap these days because of his terrible contract and his sluggish play, along with his lack of production. When he signed his contract, he was still on top of his game.
Seabrook has consistently played almost every game each season, with 5 of his seasons playing all 82-games and the lockout year playing all 47-games.
Brent Seabrook was the savor in 2013 against Detroit when he scored the game-winning goal in game 7 overtime to send the Blackhawks to the WCF to face and beat the Los Angeles Kings.
Seabrook also had an overtime game-winner in Boston against the Bruins in Game 4 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final matchup. This series was an instant classic.
With his successful days behind him, he is just riding out the rest of his career. He isn’t going to get better, but here and there, we see games where there are flashes of the old Brent Seabrook.
There are so many players that could be number 5 on this list, but Seabrook deserves it. He is one of the best defensemen in Blackhawks history, where they’ve had so many amazing players come through.
Brent Seabrook is another guy through this decade that once he hangs up the skates, he will be a Hall of Famer.
