Competing in his second Olympics, Modin was on the first line alongside Peter Forsberg and Mats Sundin in 2006 -- the same line that helped Sweden capture gold at the 1998 World Championship.

With his Olympic gold medal, he completed the "Triple Gold" (Olympic and World Championship gold and Stanley Cup), having previously won the World Championship in 1998 and the Stanley in 2004 with Tampa Bay, joining the exclusive list of 22 players who have accomplished the feat.

At the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, Modin led the tournament in scoring with eight points (4-4-8) and was named to the All-Star team despite losing in the quarter finals to the Czech Republic.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
