'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.

Patrick Roy and Joe Sakic formed a productive partnership on the ice during their playing days, leading the Colorado Avalanche to two Stanley Cup titles.

Now, Avalanche fans are hoping they're reunited again to steer the franchise back to the glory days. According to reports, the Hall of Fame goaltender possibly could be in line to become the next coach.

Roy's younger brother, Stephane Roy, posted on Facebook late Monday night that his brother would be the new coach.

Stephane Roy later told The Denver Post: “They're discussing the final details of an arrangement.”

The organization remained silent on the report, saying in an email to the Associated Press on Tuesday that the Avs, “won't comment on any speculation on this issue.”
