He was part of the 3 Amigos crew along side with Jose Theodore and Pierre Dagenais.

of his career. But once a bad boy, always a bad boy. Ribeiro then fell down and became
a crack cocaine addict. He was traded to Arizona where he had no choice to go under
the confidential substance abuse program. He came back stronger as a Nashville Predators.
He had 2 wonderful seasons with them before collapsing again. He was then forced to
retirement due to his addiction to alcohol and crack cocaine.
