Seabrook is becoming a familiar name in Canadian hockey circles. His older brother Brent, a two time National Junior Team member (2004, 2005), is currently playing for Canada at the 2006 IIHF Men's World Championship in Riga, Latvia. Keith is now making a name for himslef. This season will be his last with the Express as Keith has commited to play college hockey with the University of Denver for the 2006-07 season. "A great program, a great city and it's a bit closer to home," said the 6-foot, 198-pound Seabrook. "The campus is about 10 minutes from the main part of the city and I liked the location.”

Seabrook led all Express defencemen in scoring with 10 goals, 24 assist for 34 points. He also led all blueliners in playoff scoring with 19 points in 20 games and scored five goals in the Doyle Cup. Seabrook was named the Coquitlam Express' Rookie of the Year in 2004/05 and was one of 42 players from BC selected to compete in BC's Under-17 selection camp in Osoyoos, BC.

Coaches Report
"His developmental curve is quite steep and he has a real sense for the game," says second-year Express head coach and former NHL defenseman Rick Lanz, who spent seven seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. "He's a very intelligent young man who has all the skills in place. He sees the game well and he passes about as well as most pros I've seen. He needs to improve on his all-around game maturity, but that will come with time and experience."
