CHICAGO – Sheldon Brookbank will replace suspended Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook in the lineup for Game 3 against the St. Louis Blues.
Brookbank had two goals and five assists in 48 games this season. He hasn’t played since Chicago’s 7-5 loss at Nashville in the season finale April 12.
Brookbank will play with top defenceman Duncan Keith on Monday night as the Stanley Cup champions try to earn their first win of the series. It will be Brookbank’s 19th career playoff game.
Seabrook was suspended for three games for his hit on Blues centre David Backes in the third period of Saturday’s 4-3 overtime loss in St. Louis.
