Hey, when you work the hours I do, you have to resort to watching strange and unusual things, for your entertainment. Like for instance, the Kings in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Where I found this little (well actually not so little) jewel ...
IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: Well, in a certain arena in Sweden, he's almost as famous as (gag) Zetterberg (who's hotness is still under debate, in my own inner struggle) as the arena where they both played youth hockey is now renamed "Modin and Zetterberg hallen" (Modin and Zetterberg Hall).
Modin was drafted 64th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1994 Draft. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 1, 1999, and won the Stanley Cup with the Lightning in the 03-04 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. (Which I still don't think we know what are.)
REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: Swedish, 6'4, 218, that's a whole lot to drool on right there. (and you can bet I'm drooling on every inch.) Dark blond hair, blue eyes. Yup, another one of those "golden boys" that I always fall for.
Has a "studly countenance" look at the pictures for yourself. He's got one of those sexy Olympic medals (why this always makes my thighs sweat, I don't know, but I always go with it, life's too short...).
I don't know if this really fits here, but hey, I'm writing this so I'm taking editorial "privileges" (relax ladies, it's nowhere near the "privileges" I extend to Mr. Modin, so no worries. I behave part of the time, just don't tell anyone.)
I mean really a game-winning goal over Satan's Spawn er... the Detroit Red Wings. (yes, I still hold a grudge.)
My personal fantasies involving this one, are nowhere near the soft and romantic. Just the hot and sweaty. I just can't picture him as anything other than a pillaging Viking warrior. Opinions...

Holding Out for A Hero Bonnie Tyler (HftL's Theme Song)
Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Through the wind end the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood
