The Capitals signed defenseman Patrick Wey, a Mt. Lebanon native, to a two-year, entry-level contract beginning in 2013-14.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound defenseman recently completed his senior season at Boston College, recording career highs in points (13), assists (12), games played (37, tied) and penalty minutes (54) and registering a plus-14 rating.

Wey helped Boston College to a 22-12-4 record and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. He was named a 2013 second-team Hockey East all-star and named Hockey East's 2013 Best Defensive Defenseman.

In 133 career games with Boston College, Wey collected 33 points (four goals, 29 assists) and 147 penalty minutes. He helped Boston College win the NCAA championship in 2011-12 and tallied one goal and three assists in four tournament games.

Wey was drafted by Washington in the fourth round (115th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

— Wire report

'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.
