Seemingly every NHL team gives away some type of postgame award to name their player of the night. Last year, the Caps gave away a ridiculous Abe Lincoln beard and top hat to the teammate they deemed played the most honest game. Other NHL teams give away ugly jackets, broadway hats, or WWE-style championships belts. Then there’s the weird ol’ Florida Panthers who this year have been giving away a Kevin Spacey-in-space hoodie.
Last week, Spacey came to an actual Panthers game wearing the hoodie honoring himself. That fun night inspired one creative couple to make a Caps version of the sweatshirt. I’ll let Jess Hall explain.
When we saw Kevin Spacey night a couple weeks ago, my husband Nathan declared that he needed an Ovechkin in space shirt. I decided to make him one for Easter, and it arrived this week.
I designed it with Photoshop – my first time designing anything and it probably shows – and had it printed with Redbubble.
I’m planning to make a Holtby design for my daughter, a Kuzy one for my son, and a Carlson for my french bulldog. Pretty sure I’m going to use Justin Williams’ fro pic from earlier this week, too!
Jess, it’s incredible. And considering there’s a meteor named after Ovechkin, this design totally works!
