With the Blackhawks, Seabrook emerged as one of the premier two-way defenseman in the National Hockey League, often paired on the blueline with partner Duncan Keith.

Following Canada's Olympic triumph in Vancouver, Seabrook returned to the Blackhawks with a chance to achieve a rare double - Olympic gold and a Stanley Cup Championship in the same calendar year. In the 2010 playoffs, the Blackhawks survived a first round scare from the Nashville Predators, a hard fought battle with the Vancouver Canucks and steamrolled over the San Jose Sharks en route to the Stanley Cup Final where they would take on the upstart Philadelphia Flyers.

The Blackhawks would defeat the Flyers in six games, winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1961, with Seabrook providing essential leadership from the back end.
