Fredrik Modin (born October 8, 1974) is a Swedish professional ice hockey left winger, currently playing for the Atlanta Thrashers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

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.

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.
