Seabrook had two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Seabrook logged over 22 minutes of ice time for the second consecutive game and now has five points (one goal) in his last nine games. The veteran has been a decent fantasy blueliner this season, notching 17 points through 53 games. He's no longer producing at the rates he once did, but Seabrook plays on the power play and has enough offensive talent to warrant a look in deeper leagues.

Seabrook lit the lamp on his only shot in a 2-1 loss to the Wild on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a long time coming for Seabrook. The veteran defenseman picked up his second goal of the season in this one, and his first score came in the opening game of the year. Seabrook will be able to breathe a sigh of relief, but it doesn't overshadow the fact he was a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

Seabrook will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Wild, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Seabrook sat as a healthy scratch Tuesday against Ottawa, so it'll be interesting to see how he responds in an important divisional matchup with Minnesota. The Blackhawks will dress seven defensemen and 11 forwards against the Wild, so Seabrook's ice time may be limited.

Seabrook will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran blueliner has gone scoreless while posting a minus-4 rating in his last nine games, so coach Joel Quenneville will hope his decision to scratch Seabrook from the lineup will serve as a wake-up call while also giving him some much-needed rest. Per Mark Lazerus, Quenneville told reporters Seabrook would be "back in soon" after Tuesday's practice, but exactly when that will be remains to be seen.

Seabrook has just 11 points in 35 games this season and is on target for his lowest, non-lockout production since 2008-09.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a slow season for the veteran defender. Seabrook has three assists in 10 games in December. The entire team has been pretty much impotent on the power play, so Seabrook's production may just be a reflection of that.

Seabrook garnered a helper in Monday's 7-3 dismantling of the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

While fantasy owners certainly won't complain about the assist, the fact that Seabrook remains bogged down in a 22-game goalless streak and has added just five points over that stretch is definitely a concern. The blueliner hasn't missed the 30-point threshold since the lockout shortened 2012-13 season, but could fail to meet that mark for just the third time in his career if he doesn't pick up the pace.

Seabrook has only tallied two assists in his last 12 games.

EDGE Analysis

Seabrook's lack of production is undeniably disconcerting, but he's still averaging over 3 minutes of ice time on the man advantage per game, and the Blackhawks have been struggling to score as a team of late, so there's reason to believe his offensive output will trend upward sooner rather than later. The 32-year-old blueliner's next opportunity to make his mark on the score sheet will come Saturday against the Wild.

Seabrook hasn't collected a point since generating one goal and two helpers against the Penguins on Opening Night.

EDGE Analysis

For what it's worth, the B.C. native does have 13 blocked shots on the young season, though in hindsight, his brilliant showing in the opener looks like a tease. Seabrook has averaged 44 points over the last two years, so expect his rate of offensive production to spike soon enough; he's too well-rounded a player to be held down for too long.

Seabrook contributed a goal and two assists in Thursday's season-opening 10-1 win over the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Seabrook displayed his usual knack for jumping up into the play at the right time, though it wasn't exactly difficult to make those reads with Chicago dominating possession and out-shooting Pittsburgh 44-29. The 32-year-old blueliner looks poised for a fifth consecutive season over 30 points after averaging exactly 40 per campaign in the past four.

The Blackhawks were forced to protect Seabrook ahead of Wednesday's expansion draft due to his no-move clause, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chicago likely would have left Seabrook exposed if not for his no-move clause, as the blueliner's $6.875 million cap hit has become somewhat of a problem for the cash-strapped Blackhawks in recent seasons. The 2003 first-round pick is still a quality top-four defenseman for the 'Hawks, but his declining defensive play has made it clear that the team likely overpaid him when they signed him to a huge eight-year, $55 million deal in 2015. Seabrook's bloated contract has made it nearly impossible for Chicago to move him via trade, so he'll likely remain with the club for the foreseeable future unless the Blackhawks are willing to package him with picks and prospects to get him off the books.
