Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton is not making any lineup changes for Tuesday night’s game.
Which means veteran defenseman Brent Seabrook will be a healthy scratch for the third time in his career – and second consecutive game.
It sounds like Seabrook isn’t very happy about the decision.
A visibly upset Brent Seabrook: "I don't think I need rest. I think I feel great, I'm 34, you guys seem to want to write articles about my age and my speed. I feel like I still got a lot to offer in this league and still be a good player for somebody." #Blackhawks

“A good player for somebody” sounds like Seabrook might be willing to entertain waiving his NMC if the right option presented itself.
I asked Seabrook if he was upset about 2nd consecutive scratch:
"What do you think? It's not fun, sitting out."
Said Colliton hasn't talked to him since telling him Sunday he was out of lineup vs. LA.
"There is no conversation. He just told me, that's it."
