Anton Rödin (born November 21, 1990) is a Swedish ice hockey player. He is currently playing with Brynäs IF of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). A prospect for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL), he was selected by the team in the second round, 53rd overall, of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He has previously played in Sweden's HockeyAllsvenskan and the Swedish Elite League for Brynäs IF.
A native of Stockholm, Sweden, Rodin played junior ice hockey with local organization Hammarby IF. During his youth, he also played regionally for Gästrikland (alongside future NHL goaltender Jacob Markstrom) in the 2006 TV-pucken, an under-15 national tournament. That season, he joined Brynäs IF at the under-18 level, scoring 11 points (7 goals and 4 assists) over 14 games in the HockeyAllsvenskan's junior circuit. During the campaign, he also debuted in one game with Brynäs IF's J20 SuperElit team. In 2007–08, Rodin joined the J20 level full-time and recorded 19 points (8 goals and 11 assists) over 35 games. The following season, he improved to 55 points (29 goals and 26 assists) over 37 contests, ranking second in league scoring, seven behind teammate Henrik Thegel. His success earned him a six-game loan to Oskashamn IK's men's team in Sweden's second-tier league, HockeyAllsvenskan.
During the off-season, Rodin was selected in the second round, 53rd overall, by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Having been introduced to men's competition the previous season, Rodin moved on to Brynäs IF's premier team in the Swedish Elite League (SEL) in 2009–10. He scored a goal and five points over 36 games as a rookie, while also seeing time at the J20 level (3 assists in 4 games) and with Mora IK in Allsvenskan on a loan.
On June 1, 2010, Rödin signed a three-year, entry level contract with the Vancouver Canucks. After signing, the Canucks loaned Rodin to Brynäs IF for one more year. He improved to 26 points (7 goals and 19 assists) over 53 games in the SEL before leaving Sweden to begin playing within the Canucks' organization. After joining the team for training camp and pre-season action in September 2011, he was assigned to the Canucks' minor league affiliate, the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.
