Seabrook played with future Chicago Blackhawks teammate Kris Versteeg for three seasons in Lethbridge. After a 42-point season in 2002–03 with the Hurricanes, Seabrook was drafted 14th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

On December 30, 2009, Seabrook was called and asked to play for Team Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, along with Blackhawks teammates Duncan Keith and Jonathan Toews.

He notched one assist over seven games as Canada won the gold medal over the United States 3–2 in overtime on February 28, 2010.
