Michael Ribeiro (born February 10, 1980) is a Canadianmarker professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League (NHL). Ribeiro is of Portuguese ancestry.

Playing career

Ribeiro, who is a centre, was drafted 45th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2nd round of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. On September 30, 2006, the Canadiens traded Ribeiro and a 6th round draft pick in 2008 to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Janne Niinimaa and a 5th round draft pick in 2007.

In the 2006–07 season, he led the Dallas Stars in points scoring with 59 points. On July 12, the Dallas Stars signed Ribeiro to a one year contract worth $2.8 million for the 2007–08 season.

During the 2007–08 season on January 7, 2008, Ribeiro and the Stars agreed to a new five-year contract extension worth $25 million. Ribeiro went on to establish career highs in goals (27), assists (56) and points (83) that season and earned his first NHL All-Star game appearance.

Ribeiro is known for his creative style of play, with between-the-leg passes, patient puck-handling and his ability to set up other players. Although often critiqued for his lack of heart and toughness, the 2008–09 season also saw Ribeiro breakout as a stellar athlete in the shootout, particularly with highlight reel performances in games against the Los Angeles Kings and the Colorado Avalanche.

Ribeiro is also infamously known by some for his performance in the 2004 Eastern Conference quarter-final while still playing with the Montreal Canadiens. After a hit in game three, Ribeiro fell to the ice and began to squirm as if in pain, although many suspect that this was in fact a dive. An image of him smiling only minutes later contributed to this belief, especially among Bruins fans.
