'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 Penguins have made seven cuts, tripping their training camp roster to 32 players.

Left wing Eric Tangradi is the biggest name of the players being cut, though the move was not unexpected given Tangradi's mediocre camp and the team's overwhelming forward depth.

Also cut were forwards Ryan Craig, Nick Johnson and Colin McDonald. Goalies Brad Thiessen and Scott Munroe will join the forwards at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Defenseman Scott Harrington, the team's second round pick earlier this year, was returned to his junior team in London following a terrific camp.

Craig, Johnson, McDonald and Munroe will have until Thursday to clear waivers.
