Preds' Ribeiro Assists In Win Over Jackets

News: Mike Ribeiro notched an assist during Monday's 5-1 romp over the Blue Jackets, giving him 10 points in his last 11 games.
Analysis: With 28 points in 32 games this season, Mike Ribeiro has been a key factor in the Preds' resurgence this year. He is on pace for his best season since his 71-point campaign with Dallas back in 2010-11. He needs to be in your fantasy lineup every time he hits the ice.

Preds' Ribeiro Plays King Of Garbage Time

News: Mike Ribeiro picked up assists on both the Preds' empty-net goals Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Colorado.
Analysis: It sure is easier to collect points when those pesky netminders aren't blocking the way. That said, Mike Ribeiro hasn't had a big problem producing offense this year, as he owns 24 points in 27 games thus far and has racked up three goals and four helpers over his last five contests.

Preds' Ribeiro Racks Up Three Points

News: Mike Ribeiro scored a goal, handed out a pair of primary assists, went plus-2 and picked up a minor penalty Thursday against the Blues.
Analysis: He was involved in each of the Preds' first three goals as they ruined the Blues debut of Martin Brodeur. That's three straight games with a goal for Mike Ribeiro, who's generally better known for his passing skills. With 22 points in 25 games now, he's on his best scoring pace since 2008-09, when he tallied 78 points for the Stars.

Preds' Ribeiro Scores In Win Over Jackets

News: Mike Ribeiro saw a three-game pointless streak come to an end after scoring a first-period goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over Columbus.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro's scoring pace may have cooled down from earlier in November (nine points in nine games), but he's still a dynamite fantasy play. He continues to skate on the Preds' first line with James Neal and rookie Filip Forsberg, so the scoring opportunities should remain extremely plentiful going forward. Keep him rolling.

Mike Ribeiro, C, NSH Preds' Ribeiro Notches Two Points

Mike Ribeiro

Preds' Ribeiro Notches Two Points

News: Mike Ribeiro scored a goal and added an assist Tuesday, finishing plus-2 in a 9-2 massacre of the Leafs.
Analysis: He struggled mightily on faceoffs, winning just eight of 24, but the veteran center continues to find the scoresheet with regularity. He's only failed to register a point three times in his last 16 games and has been particularly good lately, with six points and a plus-8 rating in his last five contests. All this despite extremely limited special-teams production -- Mike Ribeiro hasn't collected a point on the man advantage since Oct. 18 despite averaging more than three minutes per game on the power play this season.

Preds' Ribeiro Scores, Assists In Win

News: Mike Ribeiro scored his fourth goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Although the veteran center hasn't exceeded one shot on goal in any of the last five games, he's nonetheless racked up five points and a plus-5 rating in that span. The goals will remain a blessed rarity unless Mike Ribeiro finds a way to shoot the puck more -- not a development that we can expect from him at age 34.

Preds' Ribeiro Thriving On First Line

News: Mike Ribeiro added an assist - his third in as many games and ninth point of the season - during Sunday's win over Vancouver.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro is really thriving in his new surroundings this season, centering the Preds' first line in between James Neal and Filip Forsberg. Keep him rolling while he's hot.

Mike Ribeiro, C, NSH Two Points For Preds' Ribeiro

Mike Ribeiro

Two Points For Preds' Ribeiro

News: Mike Ribeiro picked up his third goal of the year and added an assist in Tuesday's shootout win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: A nice night for the veteran against the Coyotes, with whom he spent a disappointing 2013-14 season. That's also four straight games with a point for Mike Ribeiro after he opened the year with a pair of scoreless outings.

Preds' Ribeiro Gets On The Board Tuesday

News: Mike Ribeiro scored the game-tying goal in an eventual shootout loss to the Flames on Tuesday.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro was the beneficiary of a Craig Smith shot that ricocheted off a pack of players to an opening at the right post, where the center slapped home the puck for the score. Bought out by the Coyotes in the offseason after a falling out with team brass, Ribeiro should fit in better with the Predators, where his fantasy production could improve while he sees time next to winger James Neal.

Ribeiro Likely Candidate For Preds' Top Line

News: Mike Ribeiro is a likely candidate to center the Predators' top line this season alongside James Neal, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro and Neal were teammates in Dallas for three seasons (2008-2011) prior to the trade that sent Neal to Pittsburgh, so it makes sense for the Preds to try and re-create whatever chemistry may have existed between the two back then. In fact, Ribeiro's two best seasons came during this period (83 points in 2007-08 and 78 points in 2008-09), however don't expect him to put up similar numbers with his new team. We think a 50-point season is within his reach, with upside to 60+ if all goes well.

Predators Sign Ribeiro To One-Year Deal

News: Mike Ribeiro signed a one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Predators on Tuesday, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The veteran was recently bought out by the Coyotes after notching 47 points in 80 games last season. At 35, his best days are behind him, but Nashville believes he'll still be a valuable asset next season. "Mike is a talented veteran center who has produced offensively everywhere he has played," Predators general manager David Poile said. "We have done our due diligence and believe Mike has a lot to offer to our team, improves us at our center ice position and will fit in with our group and contribute."

Coyotes Buy Out Remainder Of Ribeiro's Contract

News: Mike Ribeiro's contract was bought out by the Coyotes on Friday.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro spent one season with the Coyotes before having his contract bought out by the team due to a lack of production. In 2013-14, the veteran center tallied just 47 total points (16 goals and 31 assists), which the team must have felt was not enough to earn the remaining three years of his contract.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Scores In Loss

News: Mike Ribeiro scored his 16th goal of the season Saturday in a loss to the Sharks. He was plus-1 on the night.
Analysis: It has been a disappointing season for Mike Ribeiro who has 47 points and a minus-13 rating. He never seemed to be able to find chemistry with his wingers and only added 15 points on the power play, which is where Phoenix was hoping he would help the most. Depending on offseason changes, however, this could make him a bit of a sleeper next year.

Coyotes' Ribeiro A Likely Scratch Again

News: Mike Ribeiro will likely be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Devils, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: If that's indeed the case, it would be the second straight game Mike Ribeiro will head to the press box, after playing in all 72 of the Coyotes' games before Tuesday's contest against the Penguins. Jeff Halpern assumed most of Ribeiro's minutes as the third-line center Tuesday and would seem poised to do so again.

Coyotes Scratch Ribeiro On Tuesday

News: Mike Ribeiro will be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Penguins.
Analysis: It's a fairly curious decision since Mike Ribeiro is one of Phoenix's more productive scoring forwards, but perhaps coach Dave Tippett wanted to give the center a rest for the second game of a back-to-back. Paul Bissonnette will enter the lineup in Ribeiro's place.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Scores In Win

News: Mike Ribeiro scored Tuesday in a win over Florida. It was his fifteenth goal of the season.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro has four points in eight games since the end of the Olympic break. He will look to get on a run in the coming weeks as the Coyotes push for a playoff spot.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Nets Two Helpers

News: Mike Ribeiro handed out a pair of assists and went plus-1 in Thursday's win over Montreal.
Analysis: The points snapped a three-game scoreless streak for the veteran center, who remains a solid source of secondary scoring for fantasy owners. However, he hasn't potted a goal since Feb. 1 and has totaled just four assists in the eight games since then.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Spends Night In The Sin Bin

News: Mike Ribeiro was held pointless with only one shot on net, but did rack up 14 PIM Friday in a loss to Colorado.
Analysis: While owners who have Mike Ribeiro in leagues that count PIM may be pleased with the sudden outburst of malfeasance, the interesting point to note here is that he spent more time in the penalty box than on the ice (9:01) and he did not see the ice in the third period. He will look to get back to setting up goals for the Coyotes in their next game Sunday.

Yotes' Ribeiro: Two-Point Game

News: Mike Ribeiro scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Let's be honest -- we expected more when he returned to the desert. His 39 points projects to just 58 over the season, a total that would be his worst full-season performance since shortly after the 2004-05 lockout.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Heating Up

News: Mike Ribeiro picked up an assist Sunday against Vancouver, running his point streak to four games. He has five points in that span.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro has had a few streaks like this over the course of the season, so catch this one if you can. He is up to 37 points in 52 games.

Coyotes Ribeiro Scores Game-Winner Friday

News: Mike Ribeiro scored his 13th goal of the season during Friday's win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro's second period goal, just three minutes into the period, turned out to be the game-winner as the Coyotes fended off a late Oilers attempt to tie the game. He now has 13 goals and 23 assists through 51 games this season.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Scores In Loss

News: Mike Ribeiro scored his 12th goal of the season Monday in a loss to the Leafs. He was minus-1, took two shots on net and had two PIM.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro has 33 points on the year and is headed for a respectable 50-plus-point campaign, but the Coyotes and fantasy owners may be disappointed, as they may have had higher expectations of the veteran setup man after the year he had with Washington last season.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Draws Back In Tuesday

News: Mike Ribeiro (lower body) took line rushes during warmups and looks like he'll play Tuesday vs. the Blues, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: It looks like the injury that forced Mike Ribeiro from Monday's game wasn't too much of a concern, as he'll draw back into the lineup without having to miss further action. His production is down from last season's point-per-game level, but with 11 goals and 21 assists in 45 games, he's still a useful depth scorer for fantasy owners.

Coyotes' Ribeiro A Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Mike Ribeiro (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against St. Louis, according to Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona.
Analysis: Mike Ribeiro left Monday's game early and did not return. The struggling Coyotes would sorely miss his offensive game against a very tough Blues' squad.

Coyotes' Ribeiro Exits With Injury Monday

News: Mike Ribeiro left Monday's game with a lower-body injury and will not return.
Analysis: If Mike Ribeiro misses time beyond Monday, it would be a huge loss for the struggling Coyotes. Ribeiro's 32 points rank second on the team, and he's reached the 50-point plateau in eight consecutive non-lockout seasons.
