Why Brent Seabrook Should Be The Blackhawks 2nd Alternate Captain Next Season

Brent Seabrook has been a solid Top 2 d-man and fan favorite in Chicago for some years now and it is time he gets recognized.  With Patrick Sharp being traded to Dallas, there is an Alternate Captain spot available and Seabrook is hands down the best guy for it.  Seabrook has played 763 dedicated games with the Hawks and has been impressive in every one.  He is a shut down defenseman who can also put up solid numbers.  Seabrook is a good mentor for the young defensemen on the team and has been on the top of his game.  For the first time in his career, he was selected to participate in the NHL All Star Game via fan voting.  Seabrook definitely showed up in the post season this year by scoring 7 goals in 23 games.  He is also considered a clutch finisher, getting 2 game winning goals in the Hawks Cup run, one being in triple OT.  Seabrook has wore the “A” in the past when Sharp or Keith have been injured, but it is time that is permanently stitched onto his jersey.  The only other players that should be considered for this spot are Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa.  But we all know that #7 deserves it the most.
