In June, the Capitals announced a color change to their alternate sweaters, going from white to red.

We were a fan then, and now we’re getting more excited.
On Thursday, the Capitals announced the dates when they’ll be wearing their new duds. You’ll see them at 15 select home games during the 2015-16 season.
The primary color for the uniform is red and closely resembles the team’s jersey worn from 1974-75 through 1994-95. The original Capitals wordmark is featured on the front of the jersey with six stars above it and five stars beneath the numbers on each sleeve. The Capitals will wear blue pants and red helmets with their third jerseys. The new third jersey will replace the white third jersey the Capitals wore from 2011-12 to 2014-15.
The Capitals’ third jerseys are available at Verizon Center and Kettler Capitals Iceplex team stores.
