The Capital One Arena team store reopened earlier this week and the Washington Capitals may have tipped their hand that new alternate jerseys are coming soon.
In a press release which includes multiple promotional offers, the team says “be on the lookout for new unveils of 2020-21 Capitals… jerseys.” 🤔
Capitals Radio producer Mike Callow was the first to point this out on Twitter.

It’s not completely clear what this means. I’m surmising that either there are new alternates coming or Adidas is releasing 2021 versions of the team’s home and away jerseys (which would be the same with minimal differences).
There is growing evidence, however, that the NHL and Adidas are preparing to release new alternate jerseys, including a possible Reverse Retro collection.

RMNB has learned that the Capitals were planning to bring the Screaming Eagle back in red next season, which may be the team’s Reverse Retro jersey. It’s unclear if the coronavirus pandemic, a possible shortened season, and no-to-some fans at games will alter those plans. The Capitals were also prepared to wear a new version of their 2015 Winter Classic jersey in 2020, but those plans were ultimately scrapped.
What does it all mean? Let us know in the comments!
PS – Here’s one of the team store offers. Check it out, especially if you’re voting at Cap One.
Special offers include spend $50 or more and have a choice of a free Wiz or Caps branded t-shirt.
In addition, on 10/29-30, fans will receive a free team-branded face mask of their choice (Capitals, Wizards and Mystics) with a $75 purchase. pic.twitter.com/r6JYNMXSAl
