Playing career

Growing up in Tsawwassen, British Columbia, Seabrook played minor hockey with the Pacific Vipers, along with three future Chicago Blackhawks teammates, Colin Fraser, Troy Brouwer and Andrew Ladd.[1] He went on to play major junior in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Lethbridge Hurricanes and briefly with the Medicine Hat Tigers. After a 42-point season in 2002–03 with the Hurricanes, Seabrook was drafted 14th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Seabrook made his professional debut after completing his fourth and final WHL season, being assigned to the Norfolk Admirals, the Blackhawks' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, for the final three games of the regular season and six post-season games. Seabrook cracked the Blackhawks' lineup his first year out of junior in 2005–06 and recorded 5 goals and 32 points as a rookie. In his third NHL season, in 2007–08, Seabrook matched his rookie total with 32 points while tallying a personal best 9 goals. He typically forms a young defensive pairing with Duncan Keith.

During his junior career, Seabrook represented Team Canada in two World Junior Championships. In 2004 in Finland, he recorded 3 points to help Canada to the gold medal game against the United States, where they were defeated 4–3. Returning the following year in 2005 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in the United States, he matched his 3-point total from the previous tournament and helped defeat Russia 6–1 in the final to capture Canada's first gold medal of a current five-year run.

After his rookie season with the Chicago Blackhawks, Seabrook made his senior international debut with Team Canada at the 2006 World Championships in Latvia where Canada failed to medal.

Seabrook will play for Team Canada in the 2010 Winter Olympics along with teammates Duncan Keith and Jonathan Toews.
