Even though we are sure he would have like to set the mark under much better circumstances, Brent Seabrook made Chicago Blackhawks history in Thursday night’s 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. 

The veteran defender played in his 939th game in a Blackhawks uniform last night, which put him ahead of former Norris Trophy winner and current San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson for fifth all-time in games played in team history.

While Seabrook’s current contract is not a popular topic among Blackhawks fans these days, if he remains healthy and plays out its duration, he will give Stan Mikita’s record of 1394 games played a run for its money.

Seabrook could move all the way to second on the games played list as early as next season as the next three players on the list are Bob Murray (1008), Eric Nesterenko (1013) and Bobby Hull (1036).

With last night's game in the books, Brent Seabrook officially passes up Doug Wilson for 5th place in #Blackhawks history! #SeabsyBoy pic.twitter.com/Rvi7RiwK79
