from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
Brent Seabrook will return to the Chicago Blackhawks’ lineup in Game 6 as they try to even their best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinals series against the Vancouver Canucks.
The defenseman, who suffered a concussion during Game 3 when he was hit hard by the Canucks’ Raffi Torres, passed NHL protocol testing Sunday and will play in Game 6 at the United Center.
“He’s an important part of our team,” coach Joel Quenneville said. ““His makeup and his leadership qualities are a big part of our team. “Even though he wasn’t playing, you could feel his presence around the locker room and the guys. They competed for him in ways that was nice to see. The fact he gets to play again is going to help us out in a lot of ways. He assumes a lot of quality ice time in all situations. He gives us some size and some presence back there and has a big shot offensively, so it’s nice to have him back.”
