Chicago Blackhawks veteran defenseman Brent Seabrook took part in the team's voluntary workout on Thursday, his first practice since undergoing three surgeries.
The three-time Stanley Cup champion's season was supposed to be over after having right shoulder surgery in late December, left hip surgery in January and right hip surgery in early February, but the pause in the season caused by the coronavirus pandemic has left the door open for a possible return.
Chicago's season will resume on August 1 in a best-of-five play-in series against the Edmonton Oilers as part of the NHL's return.
The 35-year-old Seabrook, meanwhile, last played on December 15, but his possible return would provide some experience to a young defense.
Since making his NHL debut with the Blackhawks in 2005, Seabrook has tallied 103 goals and 464 points, while his 1,114 games played rank third in franchise history behind Hall of Famer Stan Mikita (1,396) and current team-mate Duncan Keith (1,138).
