The Capitals have acquired center Mike Ribeiro from the Dallas Stars in exchange for prospect Cody Eakin and the 54th overall pick in the 2012 draft.

Ribeiro, 32, is an experienced playmaker and should fill what has been one of Washington’s most glaring deficiencies in recent years at second-line center. He has one year remaining on his current contract and a salary cap hit of $5 million.

In 2011-12, Ribeiro recorded 18 goals and 45 assists (63 points) for the Stars.
