Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith watched the Cubs at Wrigley instead of playing preseason game

Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook have been two of the most prominent Blackhawks players over the last half decade.

However, with the Blackhawks playing the Red Wings for their second in back-to-back preseason games, the two defensemen are nowhere near Detroit. In fact, they are at Wrigley Field.

Seabrook, Keith, and Andrew Desjardins were sitting right up close while watching the Cubs play the Brewers Wednesday night.

For the last few seasons, Keith and Seabrook have played a lot of minutes for the Blackhawks, and that’s putting it mildly.

So fans should be able to understand why the second preseason game isn’t as crucial for the defensemen who were playing well into July.

Without them, the Blackhawks trailed 2-1 heading into the third period against Detroit.

Keith didn’t play at all in their first game Tuesday. Both Seabrook and Desjardins played double digit minutes, with Seabrook having the most for the team with more than 24 minutes of ice time.
