Chicago's Brent Seabrook is somewhat quietly having a fantastic playoff career. Among defensemen that have played at least 25 career playoff matches, Seabrook ranks fifteenth all-time in points per game. In 26 career games he has 19 points for an average of 0.73 per game. This number is higher than such stars as Niklas Lidstrom, Larry Murphy, Pierre Pilote, Sergei Gonchar and Mike Green of the Capitals. What makes Seabrook`s scoring rate even more impressive is the fact that over his regular season career he has averaged only 0.37 Pts per game. He doubles his point production in the post season, impressive indeed.
The leaders among defensemen are no surprise. Bobby Orr leads far and away with 92 pts in 74 playoff games for an average of 1.24 (he is actually ninth among ALL players), Brian Leetch is second with 1.02 and Paul Coffey holds third place with 1.01. The top ten is rounded out by Paul Reinhart, Al MacInnis, Denis Potvin, Ray Bourque, Doug Wilson, Ian Turnbull and Brad Park.
