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 Penguins are not looking to trade goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who is set to enter the final season of his contract. Fleury is one of three players that new Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford has told NHL counterparts is not available. The others are centers Sidney Crosby andEvgeni Malkin, each of whom has a full no-movement clause in his contract. Fleury, 29, has a limited trade clause that allows him to designate teams to which he would accept a trade. He has won 35 games in six of the last seven seasons, not including the 2013 lockout campaign when he won 23 games in 33 appearances.

• Representatives for defenseman Paul Martin spoke with new coach Mike Johnston and associate general manager Jason Botterill on Friday in Philadelphia, and the meeting went well. Martin, 33, has one year remaining on his contract and showed no interest in signing an extension with the Penguins earlier this month. However, the Penguins believe Martin's skill set is a perfect match for Johnston's philosophy, which emphasizes puck possession and defenseman who can jump into the play. The Penguins' previous coaching staff consistently rated Martin as the club's top defenseman in recent seasons.

• Left winger Tanner Glass said he will not return to the Penguins. Glass, 30, is one of 11 players scheduled to test unrestricted free agency. He scored five goals in 115 games over the last two seasons. Glass finished this past season eighth in the NHL with 247 hits, despite missing 15 contests with a broken hand.
