Keith Seabrook (born on August 2, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player with the Rockford Icehogs of the American Hockey League (AHL).

He is the younger brother of Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook.

Keith previously played three seasons in the AHL for the Abbotsford Heat, Manitoba Moose and San Antonio Rampage and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

He played for one season in Italy's Serie A for the HC Pustertal Wölfe before taking a time-out from hockey midway through the 2012–13 season.

Playing CareerEdit

Keith played junior hockey for the Coquitlam/Burnaby Express in the BCHL from 2004–2006.

In 2006, he was selected by the Washington Capitals in the second round (52nd overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Then, Keith played one season for the University of Denver before joining the WHL Calgary Hitmen major junior hockey team for two seasons.

On July 16, 2009, the Washington Capitals traded Keith to the Calgary Flames for future considerations. Then, he became a professional player with the Flames' AHL affiliate Abbotsford Heat for the 2009–10 AHL season.

Keith remained with the Heat in the 2010–11 season until March 4, 2011, when the Heat loaned him to the Manitoba Moose while centre MacGregor Sharp was loaned from the Moose to the Heat.

On July 9, 2011, the Calgary Flames traded him to the Florida Panthers for Jordan Henry.

In September of 2012, Keith signed his first European contract with the HC Val Pusteria Wolves in Italian Serie A for the 2012–13 season.

After an initial slow start with the Wolves, Seabrook showed his acumen in contributing with 8 goals and 18 points in 18 games before seeking a release from his contract to return home in Canada for a self-imposed time-out from hockey on November 18, 2012.

On August 22, 2014, he signalled his comeback to professional hockey in signing a one-year AHL contract with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Keith was assigned to ECHL affiliate, the Stockton Thunder to begin the 2014–15 season.

He contributed with 27 points in 50 games before his AHL rights were traded by the Sound Tigers to the Rockford IceHogs (an affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks) on March 4, 2015. Keith was immediately recalled from the Thunder and remained with the IceHogs for the duration of the playoffs.
