Star-crossed center Glen Seabrooke was born September 11, 1967 in Peterborough, Ontario. Seabrooke, a promising two-way forward for the Ontario Hockey League's Peterborough Petes, was drafted by the Flyers in the first round (21st overall) in the 1985 NHL Draft.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound forward spent a 10-game cup of coffee with the Flyers late in the 1986-87 season, tallying one goal and five points. In 1987-88, Seabrooke enjoyed a productive rookie season in the American Hockey League. He scored 32 goals and 78 points in just 72 games for Hershey. The player also dressed in six games for Mike Keenan's Flyers, recording one assist on six games of sparing ice time.

The next season was an unwelcomed turning point in Seabrooke's career. He suffered a serious shoulder injury after crashing into a goal post during a game with Hershey. Reconstructive surgery after the season proved unsuccessful. Seabrooke retired at age 21.
