Playing career

Modin played his youth league games for the Njurunda Sports Club, like Henrik Zetterberg. In 2008, the club renamed their arena—until then known as Njurunda Ishall—to Modin & Zetterberg-hallen.

Modin was drafted 64th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 1, 1999, where he served as an alternate captain for several seasons. In 2001 he was lone Lightning player at the 51st NHL All-Star Game and won the Hardest Shot competition with a blast clocked at 102.1 mph. He went on to win the Stanley Cup with the Lightning in the 2003–04 season. For the 2004–05 season, Fredrik Modin returned to Sweden to play for Timrå IK because of the NHL lockout. He scored 12 goals, 24 assists and had a total of 36 points. On June 30, 2006, he was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets along with Fredrik Norrena for Marc Denis.

Modin served as an alternate captain for the Blue Jackets. He has begun to decline in production, due to injuries. He scored a goal in Game 4 of the Blue Jackets' opening round playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings, the Blue Jackets' first-ever playoff appearance.

During the 2009–10 season, at the NHL trade deadline, Modin was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Los Angeles Kings for future considerations on March 3, 2010.[1]

On September 6, 2010, Modin signed a one-year contract as a free agent with the Atlanta Thrashers.[2] He posted 7 goals in 36 games for the Thrashers. On February 28, 2011, Modin was traded to the Calgary Flames for a seventh round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[3]

Hampered by a lingering back injury in his last two seasons, Modin announced his retirement on May 19, 2011.[4]
