Three Time Stanley Cup Champion Joins AHL As Development Coach

Brent Seabrook was a key member of the Chicago Blackhawks three Stanley Cup victories in the past 15 years, and after 1,114 games and 464 points at the NHL level, he's taking his experience to the junior hockey level, after officially being announced as the Player Development Coach for the Vancouver Giants of the AHL. Seabrook was a more than solid Defenceman for the Blackhawks, and after spending a stint as the assistant in Vancouver, he officially joins the staff ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Seabrook was never a star on a star studded squad, but being around and experiencing the game at the highest level always brings with it valuable knowledge that can be key to passing onto younger players, and with a desire to go into coaching, this is the perfect way to go about that. 

As a junior himself, Seabrook was able to take home 1 gold and 1 silver medal in two World Juniors tournaments, scoring 6 points in 11 games over the two tournaments, and with all that experience, the Giants will be better for having him around. "I'm excited to rejoin the Giants after getting involved last season," adds Brent Seabrook. "I look forward to sharing my experiences with the players and helping develop them as players, and as individuals within the Giants organization."
