Brent Seabrook played like a Norris Trophy candidate this season for the Chicago Blackhawks and was absolutely phenomenal on defense.
His 198 hits ranked ninth in the NHL among defensemen and his 165 hits led the Blackhawks and also ranked 13th in the league among defensemen.
Seabrook uses his great size (6'3", 213 lbs) to punish opponents and make their lives very difficult in the Blackhawks' defensive zone. He's also a great penalty killer as well.
Seabrook finished the season with a plus-minus rating of 21, which is very impressive for a defenseman on a team that finished 22nd in GAA and 27th on the penalty kill.
He's one of the five best defensemen in the NHL, and it's a shame that he doesn't receive more recognition from the national media.
