Meet Fredrik Modin, one of our amazingly wonderful veterans. We received Fredrik Modin in a trade that sent Marc Denis to Tampa also in that trade we got Fredrik Norrena. Fredrik Modin was drafted in the 3rd round 64th overall in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs. He spent two years playing in Sweden and then made his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs in 1996. After spending three seasons with the Leafs he was traded to Tampa where he played six seasons with Tampa and even won the Stanley Cup with them in 2004. When he came to Columbus we were quick to sign him to a 3 year contract. He provides leadership, and has that veteran voice in the locker room.
