'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.

The top hockey official at Penn State said he is “very confident” an outdoor NHL game will take place at 107,000-seat Beaver Stadium.

“It's not as imminent, I think, as people out there would like to think,” Penn State associate athletic director Joe Battista said, “but it's definitely being talked about.”

Battista said NHL teams also could host future training camps or rookie camps at Pegula Ice Arena, which formally opens Oct. 11. The facility was funded through $102 million in donations from Penn State alum and Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula and his wife, Kim.

As the Tribune-Review reported last week, a potential Beaver Stadium game won't necessarily be the previously anticipated matchup of the Penguins and Flyers.

“Maybe there will be a Sabres game here,” Battista said. “There are 102 million reasons why.”
