The Buffalo Sabres announced Friday they will be unveiling and raising a Rick Jeanneret banner to the rafters of KeyBank Center on April 1, on a night they're deeming "RJ Night" against the Nashville Predators.
The team says the first 10,000 fans into the arena that night will receive a replica banner.
The video tweeted out by the team indicates the banner will slot between Pat LaFontaine and Danny Gare's banners in the rafters.
The 2021-22 season will be the final season of Jeanneret calling Sabres games after 51 years on the job. His final scheduled game on the play-by-play action is slated for the regular season finale on Friday, April 29 against the Chicago Blackhawks.
