Welcome to LA - Freddy Modin

Goodbye Teddy, hello Freddy!

Earlier today the Kings shipped Teddy Purcell and a 3rd round pick to Tampa Bay for center Jeff Halpern. Then, right at the deadline, the Kings acquired another former Lightning player - this time, left wing Fredrik Modin.

Like the Halpern deal, this was a depth move. Modin is a 6'4" winger who has won a Cup. Additionally, he is one of only 23 players ALL TIME to become a member of the Triple Gold Club - winning the Stanley Cup ('04), an Olympic Gold Medal ('06) and the World Championship gold medal ('98).

To read more about the Triple Gold Club click here for my report from Vancouver last week.

He was wearing an 'A' in Columbus, where he had six point in 24 games this season.

In 51 career playoff games he has 11 goals and 11 assists.

Dean Lombardi gave a conditional pick to Tampa for Modin, believed to be around a 7th round pick. Not a lot to give up for a player with Modin's experience.
