from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook will be in the lineup when the team faces the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night at CONSOL Energy Center.
Seabrook was injured during Sunday night’s 4-2 victory over the Calgary Flames when he was hit illegally from behind by Rene Bourque and crashed face-first into the boards. After a few moments on the ice, Seabrook slowly made his way to the bench and dressing room and did not return.
“I’m feeling good,” Seabrook said Tuesday following the Hawks’ morning skate. “I remember the whole thing. I got hit and heard Bourque say right away he was sorry. I could hear Duncan (Keith) and (Jonathan) Toews behind me. I couldn’t get up so I put my head down and everybody seemed to think I was knocked out. I felt like I held my weight pretty good.”
Seabrook said the move to remove him from Sunday’s game after the hit was precautionary, especially with the knowledge the veteran has missed time on three occasions with concussions during his career.
