Western Conference Hottie: Brent Seabrook (Chicago Blackhawks)


I spent some time watching the ANA v CHI game the other day (last Wed, to be specific) and I have to admit, Chicago is growing on me (this is in spite of their unfortunate habit of injuring Brenden Morrow). This new found affection does not include one Marion Hossa [whom is an obvious douche-bag, and can bite me (although exactly where he would choose to do so is entirely up to him... [please don't kill me Stephanie, he's SO pretty, I can't help myself......])]. Anyway, long story made short, Mr. Seabrook caught my eye so now he's gracing the pages of HftL...

IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: He has gold medals at 3 different levels U18, Jrs, and the Olympics. But since he's a defenseman, I'll bet most folks don't even know his name.

After a 42-point season in 02/03 with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, Seabrook was drafted 14th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2003 Draft. Seabrook made his professional debut after completing his fourth and final WHL season, being assigned to the Norfolk Admirals, the Blackhawks' AHL team, 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 05/06 and recorded 5 goals and 32 points as a rookie. In his third NHL season, in 07/08, Seabrook matched his rookie total with 32 points while tallying a personal best nine goals. He began the season on the top-defensive pairing with Duncan Keith. The following season, he became an integral part of a young and rejuvenated Blackhawks team that made the playoffs for the first time in seven years the following season in 09. Seabrook scored 11 points in 17 post-season games as the Blackhawks made it to the Western Conference Finals, where they were defeated by the (Spawn of Satan) Detroit Red Wings.

REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: Well, when I was watching the game, my thoughts were "wow, he looks a little like Crosby" well, at least he did at the time. He'd just gotten flattened by a duckling (previously on HftL) James Wisniewski a former Blackhawk. (Which Wisniewski got an 8 game suspension for WATCH IT HERE -



You get to really see why Seabrook makes a feature on this blog if you watch the whole video. He. Is. Stunning. And you also get to see why Wisniewski was already posted, he can hit like a train (Although the author views this particular hit as questionable. There is a certain understanding, that if you hit one of mine hard, I hit one of yours harder.) and looks good doing it. Now I better pull my thoughts back to the present and the stunning Mr. Seabrook before Stephanie considers it necessary to edit me. [laughs]

We'll start with the soft-looking wavy hair, and the soft-looking dark-chocolaty eyes. and move on to... Well, I don't exactly know where wherever your imagination takes you, I guess, because where my imagination is headed, well, you better hide the children... We have dim lighting, we have soft music, we have a fire in the fireplace, the sofa cushions pulled off the sofa, and down on the floor. Wine and cheese. AND I better stop right here. Although I think most of you can probably finish that little daydream on your own...

And well, I know there are at least a few Blackhawk fans who regularly read this site... and did I forget to mention he's stunning??? Since I just might have gotten the tiniest bit subtracted... er... I mean distracted.

And if you want to see more of Seabs, check out the videos from the Hawks' trip to Switzerland and Finland to start the season. I am sure they are still on the Hawks' website. If I recall correctly there is one part where he was supposedly going to wrestle Patrick Sharp and had no shirt on . . . and otherwise made a few appearances.(sorry the wrestling was not included)

Thank you for this. I am a huge Seabrook fan. I got to go to the sharks hawks game in November where he got the game winner in overtime and it was awsome seeing how happy he was as his teammates tackled him to the ice and when he was interviewed as the first star of the game.

OH MY GOD, YOU TOTALLY PICKED MY FAVOURITE!!! He's from a town really close to me, which I think is pretty cool. He's an incredible defenseman, and he's freakin huge. He's layed out a few people. LURVE HIM.

PS - I don't meant to be a creep, but Seabs has really bright green eyes, not dark xD

Anyways, thanks for this. I LOVE IT

You idiot...Seabrook is an honorable hcokey player who worked hard to get into his status as defenseman (right handed) and not as some sort of poser. Hockey can be for ladies just as much as men, but as in my case, most of us like to get of our butts and actually play it, learn, and love the sport instead of gossiping about the cute ones who do just that. Who cares about that, there's a 1/1 trillion chance or close to that that he'll ever meet you. And remember you.
