Daniel Brodin (born February 9, 1990) is a Swedish ice hockey player, currently playing for Djurgårdens IF in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Brodin has represented Sweden internationally at the 2010 World Junior Championships. He was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs who selected him in the fifth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Brodin participated in the 2006 TV-pucken, playing for Stockholm Röd. He scored one goal and two points but couldn't help the team get promoted to the playoffs. He played the rest of the 2006–07 season in Almtuna IS' J20 team. He moved to Djurgårdens IF the following season, where he played in Djurgården's J18-team during most of the season.
Brodin was promoted to the J20-team for the 2008–09 season. The team made it to the playoffs but was beaten by Brynäs IF in the semifinals. Brodin joined Djurgården's senior team as an extra player for the away game against Luleå HF on February 12, 2009, but did not get any time on the ice. He made his real Elitserien debut against Modo Hockey on November 10, 2009, two days later on November 12, he scored his first point, an assist to Marcus Krüger who scored the 2–2 goal against Luleå HF. Brodin scored the 2–1 goal in the derby against Södertälje SK on November 14, 2009. It proved to be the game-winning goal and was also his first goal in Elitserien.
Brodin was named for Team Sweden by Pär Mårts, coach of Sweden's national junior hockey team, for the 2010 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, despite only having played nine Elitserien games at the time.
He replaced Niklas Nordgren, who suffered from a minor concussion, in the 2010 Karjala Cup. Team Sweden's last game in the tournament against Finland was Brodin's first game in the senior national team. He was called up again for Team Sweden for the 2010 Channel One Cup.
