NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators have signed veteran forwards Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy to one-year contracts.

Both signings were announced Tuesday. Ribeiro's contract is worth $1.05 million. Roy's is worth $1 million.

Ribeiro had 16 goals and 31 assists in 80 games for the Phoenix Coyotes last season. He has 202 goals and 454 assists in 865 career regular-season games.

Roy had nine goals and 28 assists in 75 games for the St. Louis Blues last season. He has 177 goals and 315 assists in 666 career regular-season games.

The moves come a week after the Predators announced center Mike Fisher would miss four to six months with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Seeking to boost its offense, Nashville already had acquired James Neal from Pittsburgh and signed Olli Jokinen.
