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.
