Pre-NHL 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.

NHL career

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, and won the Stanley Cup with the Lightning in the 2003-04 season. He has played three seasons with Toronto and his last five with Tampa. 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.

He is a member of the Triple Gold Club having won the 1998 World Championships, the 2004 Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay Lightning and Olympic Gold Medal in 2006.

Modin served as an alternate captain for the Blue Jackets. He has begun to decline in production, due to injuries, but remained a significant part of the Blue Jackets line-up. 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.

On March 3, 2010 Modin was traded to the Los Angeles Kings for future considerations.
