After a successful junior career, where he was a prominent part of Modo's J18- and J20-team, Hedman made his Elitserien debut for Modo in 2003 at the age of 17. After the season, he was drafted 132nd overall by the Washington Capitals in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Hedman was a cornerstone in Modo's 2007 championship winning team. Hedman suffered a concussion after being hit by Mika Pyörälä seven seconds into a game between Modo and archrival Timrå IK on November 26, 2007. The hit struck Hedman unfortunate and he remained lying on the ice, paramedics equipped Hedman with a cervical collar and he was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.[1] Hedman has improved his point totals for five consecutive seasons in Elitserien.

On March 27, 2008, Hedman signed a two-year contract with Frölunda HC.[2]
