The Erie Otters wore specially designed Black History jerseys during their Martin Luther King Jr. Day game against the Mississauga Steelheads on Monday. The jerseys were designed by DC native, Black Girl Hockey Club member, and popular hockey artist, Jordan Dabney.
Jo, also a big Capitals fan, was inspired to design the jerseys because Andre Burakovsky and Dylan Strome played their junior hockey with Erie.
Over the weekend, Jo and her family made the 400-mile drive up for the game. The Otters honored Dabney with a jersey of her own and let her drop the ceremonial first puck.
