With a large diamond stud earring in his left ear and a gold chain around his neck, Mike Ribeiro “looks like a rapper,” in the words of coach Adam Oates.

His fashion and colorful personality make Ribeiro stand out among most hockey players in the Washington Capitals‘ locker room. His reputation as a partier preceded him and played a role in his getting traded out of Montreal and Dallas.
