Brent Seabrook gives his child an interesting middle name


Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook’s first child was born on Friday, as the team notes. Congratulations are in order, but it’s most noteworthy for the baby boy’s name: Carter Seven Seabrook.

Yes, that’s right; his child’s middle name matches Seabrook’s jersey number.

Some might view this as sheer egotism, but here are a few alternate thoughts:

  • The 28-year-old defenseman could just be a big “Seinfeld” fan.
  • Speaking of pop culture references, hopefully this isn’t a highly questionable reference to a notorious David Fincher film.
  • Perhaps Seabrook plans on having seven kids and he’s merely counting them down by middle names?
  • Stranger idea: what if other children are named after his teammates? (Eddie Eighty-eight might end up having a wild streak.)

Anyway, it could always be worse. Seabrook could’ve pulled a North West and called him Sea To Shining Seabrook or something.

Here’s the requisite adorable photo with Seabrook and his little No. 7, via the Blackhawks:
