Mike Ribeiro C NAS 2 Hrs

Ribeiro dished out three assists and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Colorado.

In an unusual stretch for him, Ribeiro had gone three straight games without an assist, though he had tallied a goal in the Preds' final game before the All-Star break. He continues to be one of the more productive options at center, so keep rolling him out if you've got him.

Ribeiro accounted for the whole of the Preds' offense with his first goal since Dec. 16 in Tuesday's overtime loss to Montreal.

Despite his typical lack of goals -- in fact, he'd actually finished without even a shot on goal in five of the prior seven games -- Ribeiro has dished out plenty of assists to retain his typically solid fantasy value this year. He could hit 50 assists with a goal total in the high teens, which would add up to yet another terrific campaign for the crafty veteran center. Now if only he could win more draws -- he lost 12 of 16 Tuesday. This year's .424 winning percentage is among the lowest he's posted, and Ribeiro was never a good faceoff man in the first place.

Ribeiro picked up a pair of assists (one on the power play) to go with two PIM and a plus-1 rating Tuesday in a win over the Canucks.

As usual, Ribeiro's been an assist machine. Despite some game-to-game inconsistency lately, he's still collected 10 points -- all helpers -- over his last nine games. He hasn't taken a shot on goal in three of those games, and he's taken just one shot in another three, but hey, you don't need to shoot to rack up assists.

Ribeiro collected three assists -- two on the power play -- in Sunday's loss to Anaheim.

Another great fantasy outing from Ribeiro, who now has seven points (all assists) in his last five games. The 34-year-old is up to nine goals and 35 points in 38 games on the season, to go with a plus-14 rating. He's been a fantasy stud in Nashville, appearing on the scoresheet in 12 of his last 16 games. His consistency and 75-point potential makes him a must-own in almost every league.

Ribeiro notched two assists and fired off three shot attempts in Saturday's wild 7-6 victory over the Predators.

It's unsurprising that the Preds' top-line center was prominently involved in a game that eight players turn in multi-point showings. Ribeiro has sparked the Preds' reemerge as a Western Conference contender this season, setting up star wingers Filip Forsberg and James Neal with great proficiency. He's recorded four assists over his last four games to up his season total to a team-leading 23.

Ribeiro notched an assist during Monday's 5-1 romp over the Blue Jackets, giving him 10 points in his last 11 games.

With 28 points in 32 games this season, Ribeiro has been a key factor in the Preds' resurgence this year. He is on pace for his best season since his 71-point campaign with Dallas back in 2010-11. He needs to be in your fantasy lineup every time he hits the ice.

Ribeiro picked up assists on both the Preds' empty-net goals Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Colorado.

It sure is easier to collect points when those pesky netminders aren't blocking the way. That said, Ribeiro hasn't had a big problem producing offense this year, as he owns 24 points in 27 games thus far and has racked up three goals and four helpers over his last five contests.

Ribeiro scored a goal, handed out a pair of primary assists, went plus-2 and picked up a minor penalty Thursday against the Blues.

He was involved in each of the Preds' first three goals as they ruined the Blues debut of Martin Brodeur. That's three straight games with a goal for Ribeiro, who's generally better known for his passing skills. With 22 points in 25 games now, he's on his best scoring pace since 2008-09, when he tallied 78 points for the Stars.

Ribeiro saw a three-game pointless streak come to an end after scoring a first-period goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over Columbus.

Ribeiro's scoring pace may have cooled down from earlier in November (nine points in nine games), but he's still a dynamite fantasy play. He continues to skate on the Preds' first line with James Neal and rookie Filip Forsberg, so the scoring opportunities should remain extremely plentiful going forward. Keep him rolling.

Ribeiro scored a goal and added an assist Tuesday, finishing plus-2 in a 9-2 massacre of the Leafs.

He struggled mightily on faceoffs, winning just eight of 24, but the veteran center continues to find the scoresheet with regularity. He's only failed to register a point three times in his last 16 games and has been particularly good lately, with six points and a plus-8 rating in his last five contests. All this despite extremely limited special-teams production -- Ribeiro hasn't collected a point on the man advantage since Oct. 18 despite averaging more than three minutes per game on the power play this season.
