'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey will need surgery after fracturing a cheekbone Friday night in Edmonton.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Saturday that Quincey flew home to Detroit after he was injured. Quincey was hurt when a shot hit the shaft of his stick and caromed into his face.

Quincey has a goal and an assist in 26 games this season.

Hall joins Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes picked up forward Adam Hall off waivers. The team announced that Hall was available to play Saturday against the Lightning — the team that placed him on waivers.

The 32-year-old Hall had four assists in 20 games with the Lightning this season. He spent the 2007-08 season with the Penguins, scoring two goals and four assists in 46 games.

Blues make moves

The St. Louis Blues activated rookie Vladimir Tarasenko off injured reserve from a concussion but lost another forward when T.J. Oshie was placed on IR.

The 21-year-old Tarasenko has six goals and six assists in 17 games. Oshie sustained an apparent shoulder injury making a check in the second period Tuesday against San Jose.
