The Toronto Maple Leafs drafted Freddie Modin in the 3rd round (64th overall) in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. After three seasons with the team, he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Cory Cross and a 7th round draft pick (Ivan Kolozvary).
Modin’s best seasons with the Lightning were in 2000-01 and 2003-04. In 2001, he led the Lightning with a career high 32 goals, he was 9th in NHL All-Star Team voting for left wingers and represented Tampa Bay at the NHL All-Star Game.
Freddie Modin was a member on the 2004 Tampa Bay Stanley Cup Championship team. He was 9th in Selke trophy voting that year and had the seventh most even strength goals in the NHL (23).
Only Steven Stamkos, Vincent Lecavalier, Marin St. Louis, Nikita Kucherov, Alex Killorn, Brayden Point, Tyler Johnson and Brad Richards have scored more goals than Fredrik Modin has in a Tampa Bay Lightning jersey.
In the summer of 2006, the Tampa Bay Lightning traded Modin with Fredrik Norrena to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Marc Denis. After three seasons with Columbus, Modin was traded at the deadline to the L.A. Kings for a conditional 7th round pick that was not exercised. The Kings had to win the Stanley Cup for Columbus to get the pick.
Modin signed with the Atlanta Thrashers for the following season, but was traded again at the deadline to the Calgary Flames for 7th round draft pick in 2011 (traded to San Jose who selected Colin Blackwell). Modin retired in May 2011 after only four games with Calgary.
