IceHogs Acquire Keith Seabrook

On Wednesday afternoon, the Rockford IceHogs announced that they have acquired defenseman Keith Seabrook, the 26-year-old brother of Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook.

The younger Seabrook was a second round pick (52nd overall) by the Washington Capitals in 2006. He has played in 186 AHL games in a career including stops with the Abbotsford Heat, Manitoba Moose and San Antonio Rampage. This season, Seabrook had seven goals and 20 assists in 51 games for the ECHL’s Stockton Thunder.

  1. Cripes I saw “acquire” followed by Keith and Seabrook and damn near had another heart attack..whew! We should bring him up once in while just to put that on the lineup and mess with the other guys heads! Did not know that Seabs had a brother…glad he is with us though.

  2. Can David Toews be far behind?

    Not sure I get this move. Maybe it’s to entice B.Seabs to give the Hawks a hometown discount when they negotiate a new deal next summer. Or maybe K.Seabs is a late bloomer.

  3. We are family. I got all my brothers and sisters with me. (mission impossible 3 elevator music)

  4. With Dahlbeck, Brennan and earlier Clendening all sent packing, it appears the Ice Hogs are in need of veteran help on the blue-line if they hope to go anywhere in the playoffs.

    Keep in mind Johns, Pokka, Gotovets & Fournier are in the first year pro.

  5. All in the family! Good luck to Keith.

    Watched the Nucks v Sharks game last nite. A few thoughts I had. Prospects are really suspects. Jacob Markstrom was at one point the highest rated goalie prospect not in the NHL. Last night he gave up 3 goals on 4 shots his only save was a juicy rebound that led to a goal, at his pace he will be out of the league soon.

    Clandening did not look good. He got out hustled and out worked a lot last night. He was our top defensive prospect at one point. He does not look like an NHL player. Ryan Stanton is nothing more then an average NHL player.

    Vancouver is starting both of these guys. I don’t think Vancouver is a playoff team anymore. That’s an aging core and bad minor league.

    Just some random thoughts

  6. Mining man, your first sentence is the exact same reason I’m posting right now. Tab, you have to beat around the bush a little more with your headlines. How about:

    “Brent Seabrook, who is very much still a Chicago Blackhawk, has a younger brother whose name coincidentally happens to be Keith, who has been acquired by the Rockford ice hogs.”

    Something like that :)

  7. I’ve always thought Markstrom was overrated. Surely hindsight is 20/20. But I’ve argued that since he showed up as a top prospect in some of the rankings. He passed through waivers unclaimed to start the year. Then lit up the AHL. Finally gets his shot again, and craps his pants.

  8. SSHM – stop with the objective analysis of the former Hawk prospects who have been shipped off to other locales and are now playing on NHL teams. It doesn’t fit the narrative of those who think Stan Bowman is doing a terrible job.
