Arizona Coyotes bought out Mike Ribeiro for 'behavioral issues'

On Friday afternoon before the 2014 NHL Draft, the Arizona Coyotes bought out Mike Ribeiro’s contract. Shortly after the buyout, it was explained why Ribeiro’s time with the team came to an end.

“Mike had some real behavioral issues we felt we could not tolerate going forward,” Coyotes GM Don Maloney added, via the Arizona Republic.

It was only a matter of time until Ribeiro’s behavior off the field caught up to him, so we cannot be too surprised that it was the motivating factor behind the Coyotes reason to buy out his contract.

Now, we will just need to see where he lands next.
