'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.

Despite a strong push from the Penguins, free-agent defenseman Scott Hannan signed a long-term deal with the Colorado Avalanche, Sunday night.

Hannan, 28, agreed to a four-year, $18 million deal according to TSN in Canada. The Penguins are believed to have been one of four teams to make a serious run at Hannan, including Los Angels and Calgary.

Pittsburgh signed its first unrestricted free agent of 2007 by inking goaltender Dany Sabourin to a two-year contract worth about $1 million. Sabourin spent this past season with Vancouver. He previously spent time in the Pittsburgh organization, from August 2005 to October 2006, and played in one game with the Penguins during the 2005-06 campaign.

Mostly a minor-league veteran, Sabourin has appeared in only 14 NHL games, going 2-8-1 with a 3.13 goals-against average.
