'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.

OTTAWA -- The Penguins selected right wing Nathan Moon with the 120th overall pick in the fourth round of the NHL Entry Draft at Scotiabank Place.

Moon, a right wing from Kingston of the Ontario Hockey League, was rated the 134th best prospect available by International Scouting Services. Moon scored 35 goals and recorded 77 points with Kingston last season.

In the fifth round, with the 150th overall pick, the Penguins selected goaltender Alexander Pechurski, who spent last season with Magnitogorsk. Pechurski was the 10th rated international goaltender by NHL central scouting.

In the sixth round, with the 180th overall pick, the Penguins chose another goaltender -- Patrick Killeen from Brampton of the OHL. He was the 15th rated goalie by ISS and registered a 2.76 goals-against average in 34 appearances this past season.

The Penguins did not own a pick in the opening three rounds due to trades for right wings Marian Hossa and Georges Laraque, forward Pascal Dupuis and defenseman Hal Gill.
