Modin is on a one-year "bookmark" contract. Holding a roster place for either Klingberg or Burmistrov if Dawes turns out to be of any value.
He won't be back if we don't make the playoffs, and if we do make the playoffs, he won't be resigned because we will need a youth contract because of Bogo's and Bergfors' contract extensions. He's basically like Afinogenov. Playing for next years' money somewhere else.
