History: The original Hornets were the transplanted Detroit Olympics team of the International-American Hockey League (later AHL). The Hornets played from 1936 until 1956. The franchise was revived in 1961 and played until the Penguins took over. The Hornets won their first Calder Cup in this sweater, defeating the Providence Reds in 1952.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm
