The Washington Capitals brought back the Screaming Eagle during the 2020-21 season. Not only did the Capitals’ Reverse Retro jersey sell out quickly, but it polled well with fans too. Now NHL players are showing the design love, too.
On Thursday, the NHLPA released a player poll where nearly 500 players from the league’s 31 teams participated. We learned earlier that Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom were voted to have the best shot and be the best passer respectively.
The players also voted the Capitals’ Reverse Retro jersey fifth-best in the league.
