Capitals to Wear Third Jersey for 12 Home Dates in 2019-20
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will wear their third jersey, modeled after the team’s original red jersey, for 12 home dates during the 2019-20 season, senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan announced today.
Eleven of the 12 games in which the Capitals will wear their third jerseys are against Metropolitan Division opponents, including a New Year’s Eve contest against the New York Islanders and against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Super Bowl Sunday.
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 Capitals’ third jerseys are available at the Capital One Arena and MedStar Capitals Iceplex team stores or online at Shop.NHL.com.
