DALLAS STARS ACQUIRE CENTER MIKE RIBEIRO FROM MONTREAL
IN EXCHANGE FOR DEFENSEMAN JANNE NIINIMAA
Dallas Also Gets 6th Round Pick in 2008 for
5th Round Selection in 2007

FRISCO, Tex. -- Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has acquired center Mike Ribeiro (rih-bee-AIR-roh) and a sixth round pick in 2008 from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for defenseman Janne Niinimaa and a fifth round selection in 2007.

"Mike is a skilled playmaker that will provide offense to our group both five-on-five and on the power play," said Armstrong. "We are glad to have him in Dallas as we head into regular season play next week."

Ribeiro, 26, appeared in 79 games with Montreal last season, recording 16 goals and 35 assists for 51 points with 36 penalty minutes. Among team leaders, he ranked third in power play goals (8), fourth in assists and fourth in points. He also played in all six playoff games with the Canadiens last year, collecting two assists.

The 6-0, 175-pound center registered his best offensive NHL season with Montreal in 2003-04 when he notched 20 goals and 45 assists for 65 points with a +15 rating in 81 games. During the '03-04 season, Ribeiro led Montreal in points, assists, was second in game-winning goals (5), tied for second in plus/minus and in power play goals (7), and was third in goals. In 11 post-season outings with Montreal in 2004, he tallied two goals and one assist for three points with 18 penalty minutes.

Montreal's second round draft selection (45th overall) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Ribeiro has appeared in 276 career NHL games and collected 50 goals and 103 assists for 153 points with 21 power play goals and 92 penalty minutes. The Montreal, Quebec native played in the 2001-02 NHL YoungStars game during the NHL All-Star Weekend, registering four points (1-3-4).

During two seasons (1997 - 1999) in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Ribeiro registered 107 goals and 185 assists for 292 points in 136 games. He led the league in '97-98 in assists (85) and in '98-99 in goals (67), assists (100) and points (167).
