The Nashville Predators signed free agent centers Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy to one-year contracts. Ribeiro's deal is worth $1.05 million while Roy will earn $1 million next season.
The team also announced the signing of first-round pick Kevin Fiala to a three-year entry-level contract. Fiala, 17, was a finalist for the 2014 Swedish Hockey League Rookie of the Year Award and the 11th overall pick by the Predators last month.
Ribeiro, 34, scored 47 points with 16 goals and 31 assists for the Phoenix Coyotes last season. In 865 career NHL games with Montreal, Dallas, Washington and Phoenix, Ribeiro has scored 656 points.
"Mike is a talented veteran center who has produced offensively everywhere he has played," Predators general manager David Poile said. "We have done our due diligence and believe Mike has a lot to offer to our team, improves us at our center ice position and will fit in with our group and contribute."
Roy, 31, scored 37 points in 75 games with the St. Louis Blues last season and is a four-time 60-point, 20-goal scorer. In 666 career NHL games, he has scored 492 points while spending time with Buffalo, Dallas, Vancouver and St. Louis.
"Derek brings us added depth, playmaking ability and experience at center, helping complement our young, developing wingers," Poile said. "He has played in a number of roles, averaging about 19 minutes of ice time throughout his career, and is effective on the power play. He provides our coaching staff with some added skill and maturity down the middle when putting together our lineup for the coming season."
