Phoenix Coyotes sign Mike Ribeiro

USA TODAY Sports

Coyotes find their new number 1 center in a former Dave Tippett player.

The Phoenix Coyotes may have finally found an answer for their lack of a number one Center. According to reports, the Yotes have signed Mike Ribeiro to a 4-year deal worth $22 million.

The 33-year-old spent last season in Washington and played all 48 regular season games. He scored 13 goals and 49 points in the lockout-shortened season.

Ribeiro played six years with the Dallas Stars, including three under current Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett.

Offense is the 6-foot center's game as he has scored at least 59 points in six of his last nine seasons. Ribeiro was on pace to exceed that mark again last season as he scored more than a point-per-game.

It is a rare feeling to see the Desert Dogs make a major splash in free agency, but the positive vote by the Glendale City Council, and the presumptive future sale of the team to RSE, has opened the door for events like this.

Check back throughout the day for more info about Ribeiro and other signings by the Coyotes.
