The Washington Capitals hosted their 14th annual Military Night on Thursday night. As part of Military Night, the Caps wore camo jerseys during warm-ups that were auctioned off later in the evening. Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer’s specially designed military masks were also up for bidding.
The Capitals also honored service members during stoppages in play with Salutes to Troops segments. Each time, the Verizon Center crowd would rise in a loud, roaring standing ovation.
You can see the warm-up jerseys, details of the new masks, and more in my photo collection from the night.
