It is always fun to see the Chicago White Sox interact with the other professional sports teams in the city. Well, that happened early yesterday when the Chicago Blackhawks announced that Brent Seabrook was going to be retiring. That is a huge blow to the organization because he has done so much for them and the city. He was a great player for them for a very long time. He is retiring as one of the all-time great players in the history of the team.

Brent Seabrook was a gamer. He played in 1114 regular-season games for the Chicago Blackhawks. Add in 123 playoff games and you have a lot of hockey. It makes perfect sense why his body broke down a little bit earlier than some other defenseman his age. He played a lot of hard minutes in stressful situations against the opposition’s best players.

Over his career, he is one of the most productive players in the history of the Chicago Blackhawks. With him as one of their core leaders, they won the Stanley Cup three times (2010, 2013, 2015) and had two other appearances in the Western Conference Finals (2009, 2014). That is a lot of winning for a team and he was one of the biggest keys.

The Chicago White Sox had some nice things to say about Brent Seabrook.

Seeing the White Sox acknowledge Seabrook on Twitter was really cool. They are friendly franchises and they support each other. It is fair to say that the White Sox are hoping a few of their players have a career as Seabrook had.

Seeing someone like Lucas Giolito come out and give some nice words is really cool. Lucas is the ace of a World Series hopeful and he just wanted to say some nice things about an all-time Chicago athlete. Hopefully, Giolito can help the White Sox to where Seabrook was able to help the Hawks. It is great that some seriously good players represent Chicago in the way that these guys do.
