The Capitals will hold a Pride Night on February 11 to honor the LGBTQ+ community as part of their Hockey is for Everyone events. They are running an auction for signed sticks and specialty pucks which will remain open until the second intermission of the Kings game.
The sticks were taped with Pride Tape and autographed. The Capitals will use sticks with Pride Tape in warm-ups prior to the game, making this the third year the Capitals have used Pride Tape pregame. Pride Tape is a partner of the NHL and supports You Can Play.
