The Capitals announced the deal Friday.

The 29-year-old Grabovski spent the last five seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He had career-highs with 29 goals and 29 assists in 2010-11. Last year his production slipped to nine goals and seven assists, and the Maple Leafs bought out his contract last month.

Ribeiro was second on the Capitals with 49 points last season, but he signed a free agent deal last month with the Phoenix Coyotes.
