We reported yesterday that the Hartford Whalers banners were missing from the newly renovated XL Center, but one fan is asking for that to be quickly remedied.

Gov. Dan Malloy asked the Capitol Region Development Authority to rehang the banners, and they agreed. The banners should be back up before the opening of the Hartford Wolfpack on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Malloy released a statement saying "This arena serves as an important economic driver for the Hartford region, and while the newly unveiled renovations represent its next phase, we should continue to honor and celebrate its history."
