Ribeiro traded to Washington

The Dallas Stars have traded center Mike Ribeiro to the Washington Capitals in exchange for forward Cody Eakin and Washington's second-round selection (54th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Ribeiro, 32, recently concluded his sixth season with the Stars, where he earned 18 goals and 45 assists, totaling 63 points in 74 games with the club. In total, Ribeiro played 461 games for the Stars, registering 123 goals and 284 assists for 407 points.

Eakin, 21, is a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and started the 2011-12 season with the Hershey Bears, Washington's affiliate in the AHL. He posted 13 goals and 14 assists for 27 points with a plus-4 rating in 43 games with Hershey.

"Cody Eakin is a young, competitive player who we've had our eye on for some time," said Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk. "He plays a solid two-way game and epitomizes the 'hard to play against' mentality we're building our team around. Cody's future is bright, and we're excited to add him to our club."

Eakin made his NHL debut on Nov. 1, 2011 vs. Anaheim. On Nov. 4, 2011, his second NHL game, Eakin earned his first two NHL points posting one goal and one assist against the Carolina Hurricanes.

He was Washington's third-round selection (85th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
