At first glance, the Washington Capitals’ 2019 NHL draft hat looks pretty pedestrian. There’s nothing too special about the red and blue design. It’s serviceable. Recognizable. But also identical to most of the hats that you can find year-round at Capital One, MedStar Capitals Iceplex, and on the online store.
However, when you take a peek under the bill, there’s a hidden design that gives this years’ Draft hat a surprising detail to set it apart and give it something unique enough to justify a purchase.
(Because let’s face it, all of our Caps hat collections are likely getting a little out of hand at this point.)
The Weagle logo has raised sections in a non-embroidered material.
The hat also sticks pretty closely to the Capitals’ red and blue color scheme.
But then comes the surprise.
A map of downtown DC along with “Washington DC” is debossed onto the bottom of the bill.
The 2019 NHL Draft begins on Friday, June 21. The Capitals have picks in the first, second, fourth, fifth and seventh rounds. Those picks comprise of the 25th overall, 56th, 118th, 129th (acquired from Buffalo) and 211th.
6/21 Update: Since publication, Fanatics has updated the photos of the Draft Hat twice. The photos in this article have been updated to reflect that change.
