Morten Madsen (born January 16, 1987) is a Danish professional ice hockey player who has played more than 100 games in the AHL. He is under contract with Karlskrona HK of the Swedish Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Morten Madsen was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the 4th round, 122nd overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. After being drafted, Madsen joined the Victoriaville Tigres of the QMJHL for the 2006–07 season. In his lone season in the QMJHL he registered 32 goals and 68 assists for 100 points in 62 games. In six playoff games with the Tigres he scored 3 goals and added 6 assists in six games. Before entering the QMJHL he played for Frölunda HC's junior team in Sweden. Prior to moving to Sweden he played junior hockey for Danish Rødovre Mighty Bulls as well as two games for Rødovre's senior team at the age of 15.

In 2007 Madsen signed a three-year contract with Minnesota Wild in NHL but only got to play with the Houston Aeros in the AHL. After two seasons with Houston he signed a try-out contract with Modo Hockey in the Swedish Elitserien. His stay with MODO proved successful and he extended his contract which now runs until the end of the 2012-13 season. Prior to the 2010-11 season, he was named an alternate captain for the Örnsköldsvik team.

After four seasons with Modo, Madsen left out of contract to sign a deal in Germany with the Hamburg Freezers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga on April 8, 2013.[1] In March 2015, he inked a fresh three-year deal with the Freezers.[2] The organization folded in May 2016, making Madsen and the entire squad free agents.[3] On June 27, 2016, he signed with Karlskrona HC of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL).[4]

International play[edit]

Madsen was a member of Team Denmark at the 2006 World Championships in Riga, Latvia. He would play in three games without registering a point.

In December 2006, Madsen played a key role as the Danish team, playing on home ice in Odense, gained promotion from the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships Pool I to the top flight for the first time ever. Madsen was the top scorer for the Danish team, notching 2 goals and 7 assists in 5 games.

In 2007, Madsen was once again a member of Team Denmark at the 2007 World Championships in Moscow, Russia. He played in 5 games scoring one goal.
