The defenseman is “undergoing further medical evaluation,” according to team physician Dr. Michael Terry. Seabrook, who has four points (three goals, one assist), was a healthy scratch for the third time this season Wednesday. The 34-year-old has four-and-half years remaining on his contract that carries a $6.875 million salary cap hit.
Colliton said Seabrook has "had a couple things nagging him, and he's going to get them checked out."— Ben Pope (@BenPopeCST) December 19, 2019
Said it did not factor into him being a scratch last night.
Meanwhile, Robin Lehner will start for the Blackhawks tonight (7 p.m. CT at Winnipeg).
The Blackhawks will also visit Denver on Saturday to play the Avalanche. It’s unknown if Seabrook will join the team there.
