'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.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — All four Pittsburgh players drafted in 2011 have reached the NHL.

Upper St. Clair's Vince Trocheck was recalled by the Panthers and will make his debut Friday. Brandon Saad (Chicago), J.T. Miller (New York Rangers) and John Gibson (Anaheim) also have reached the NHL.

Trocheck replaces center Marcel Goc, who was acquired by the Penguins on Wednesday.

“I'm extremely excited,” Trocheck said. “This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid.”
