Video: Mike Ribeiro turns his career around

Mar 19, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

It seemed like the perfect star to a career when Mike Ribeiro was drafted by his hometown team, the Montreal Canadiens.

Unfortunately, that didn’t shake out that well in reality, as he eventually had a falling out with the Habs. Montreal ended up sending him to Dallas, where he turned things around a bit with the Stars. That process only continued when that same team traded him to the Washington Capitals, where he’s surprisingly become the team’s leading scorer.

The video below takes a look at how he’s revitalized career. Mike Milbury and Keith Jones also consider an intriguing question: could he continue his best-ever run in yet another locale?

    Bottom line Ribeiro is 33 years old now, and an unrestricted free agent at seasons end. This is his last chance to get a big contract, so I will go out on a limb and say he is motivated by future $$$ and is giving his best effort this season.
