'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.

Two of the more promising young players in the Penguins' system, forward Jayson Megna and defenseman Philip Samuelsson, were re-signed Thursday.

Each player was a restricted free agent and received one-year, two-way deals.

Megna, who has five goals in 36 NHL games, will receive $874,125 at the NHL level.

Samuelsson, who played briefly with the Penguins last season, will earn $550,000 if he plays with the NHL club.
