February 3, 2001 -The Pittsburgh Penguins minor-league affilaiate, The Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, played a tribute game at the Mellon Arena against the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. The Baby Pens wore Hornets jerseys and a banner was raised at the arena that celebrated the three Hornets’ Calder Cup Championships.  The banner has been removed from the Civic Arena and will be publicly displayed in the near future.

The Hornets banner unfurled on the crow's nest, near the top of the Mellon Arena in July 2010.
