Modin appeared in 898 NHL games with Toronto, Tampa Bay, Columbus, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Calgary. He accumulated 232 goals and 230 assists over that span and lifted the Stanley Cup as a member of the Lightning in 2004.

Fredrik Modin, who Calgary acquired on Monday, won't make his Flames' debut on Tuesday.

"We’ll wait and see (when Modin makes his Flames debut)." Calgary won on Sunday and they are currently ranked seventh in the Western Conference with 73 points in 64 games.

Fredrik Modin was activated from the IL on Sunday after missing the past six games with a mid-body injury.

He dressed in Atlanta captain Andrew Ladd's place on a line with Rich Peverley and Niclas Bergfors against the Lightning.

He played over 16 minutes in the contest, but was held off the scoresheet in a 7-1 loss to Tampa Bay. Modin has just nine points in 29 games this season.
