Chicago Blackhawks' legend Brent Seabrook is back on the ice. This time, he will be serving as a player development coach for the Vancouver Giants of the WHL.
This won't be the three-time Stanley Cup champion's first coaching stint, however. Seabrook filled in as an assistant for the Giants last season while head coach Michael Dyck joined Canada at the World Juniors.
“I’m excited to rejoin the Giants after getting involved last season,” Seabrook said in a release. “I look forward to sharing my experiences with the players and helping develop them as players, and as individuals within the Giants organization.”
The 37-year-old announced the end of his playing career in March 2021. The Blackhawks then traded his contract, which runs through 2023-24, to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Tyler Johnson and a draft pick in July 2021.
A longtime franchise cornerstone of the Chicago Blackhawks, Brent Seabrook scored 464 points (103 goals, 361 assists) in 1,114 regular-season NHL games. He added 59 points (20 goals, 39 assists) in 123 playoff contests -- all of which came with the Blackhawks.
