Jackets trade Modin to Kings
The Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Fredrik Modin from the Columbus Blue Jackets for a conditional seventh round selection in the 2010 NHL Draft, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Wednesday.

Modin, 35, has recorded six points (2-4=6) and 12 penalty minutes in 24 games with the Blue Jackets this season while serving as an alternate captain. He missed the first 31 games this season due to injury.

The 6-4, 218-pound native of Sundsvall, Sweden has played 838 career games in the NHL (with Toronto, Tampa Bay and Columbus), posting 447 points (222-225=447) and 425 penalty minutes. Modin, who won a Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004, has registered 22 points (11-11=22) and 40 penalty minutes in 51 career NHL postseason games. He will wear No. 33 with the Kings.

The veteran forward is a five-time 20-goal scorer and two-time 30-goal scorer. With Tampa Bay, he accumulated a career-high 32 goals in 2000-01 and 28 assists, 57 points and a plus-31 rating (which was fourth in the NHL) in 2003-04. He was an All-Star in 2001 and recorded four assists in the game, tied for the second highest total in All-Star Game history.
