These concepts reimagine the Washington Capitals’ screaming eagle design as a modern-day alternate jersey
Unless the coronavirus pandemic derails its plans, the NHL will reportedly debut throwback jerseys during the 2020-21 season according to Icethetics. With the Washington Capitals already honoring its Capitals’ wordmark in both its current jersey design and its third jersey in recent seasons, fans have clamored for an alternate jersey that features the Weagle logo or the screaming eagle illustration that first debuted in 1995 and retired in 2007.
As Alex Ovechkin nears the end of his career, the screaming eagle jersey, which he wore during his first two seasons in the NHL, has made fans more sentimental about its possible return.
Several designers including Tyler Duchaine (@tylerduchaine, Lucas Daitchman (@ldconcepts), and KP8 Design (@KP8Design) have created several intriguing concepts of what that jersey could look like with a modern-day tune-up.
