Mike Ribeiro, the left-shooting center out of Montreal, would begin his NHL career with the Canadiens wearing number 71, but move on to excel with the Dallas Stars while wearing jersey number 63.
Montreal traded Ribeiro to Dallas in September of 2006, which seemed to invigorate Ribeiro's offense. In his first season with Dallas, Ribeiro racked up 59 regular season points, setting his teammates up with goals 41 times. His second season with the Stars would be even more productive as he notched 83 points (27 goals and 56 assists).
Oddly enough, Ribeiro would have exactly 56 assists again in his third season with Dallas, this time paired with 22 goals.
Through four seasons with Dallas, and six with the Canadiens, Ribeiro has accumulated 426 points in 581 regular season games. He also has 25 points in 42 playoff games.
