The Washington Nationals are National League champions and going to the World Series for the first time.
And Nats World Series gear is already available to purchase.
Look, as a guy, I’m jealous.
The Capitals recently released new gear for the fall season and it includes this trucker hat. The navy blue trucker hat features the abbreviation WSH stitched on the front and the Weagle logo on the back.
Funko has announced that they’re making Alex Ovechkin into a Funko POP! figurine again, but this time with his signature details.
Funko Ovi will have Human Ovi’s iconic gap-toothed smile and yellow laces. It also rocks a Capitals third jersey and custom red and navy gloves.
Take a look.
At first glance, the Washington Capitals’ 2019 NHL draft hat looks pretty pedestrian. There’s nothing too special about the red and blue design. It’s serviceable. Recognizable. But also identical to most of the hats that you can find year-round at Capital One, MedStar Capitals Iceplex, and on the online store.
However, when you take a peek under the bill, there’s a hidden design that gives this years’ Draft hat a surprising detail to set it apart and give it something unique enough to justify a purchase.
(Because let’s face it, all of our Caps hat collections are likely getting a little out of hand at this point.)
The Washington Capitals have already broken sale records for Stanley Cup merchandise, but they’re not done yet.
Fanatics is selling a shirt celebrating the Capitals Stanley Cup banner being raised in Capital One Arena for the first time. The red banner unfurls in front of a grey background. The other piece of new merch is a black and platinum flexfit hat, with the Stanley Cup on the front and back, and Weagles on the side.
Before the 2017-18 season began, Alex Ovechkin uttered a defiant phrase that would define the Caps season.
“We’re not going to be suck this year,” Ovechkin said.
With the Stanley Cup playoffs wrapped up for the 2017-18 season and Lord Stanley’s Cup securely in the possession of the Washington Capitals, the NHL is now turning to the 2018 Draft.
On June 12, the NHL released the hats that will be worn by every player drafted.
The draft hasn’t even started yet and the Capitals’ design has already sold out. We’re serious.
Capitals fans are already driving record-setting merchandise sales following the team’s Stanley Cup championship, and there’s now another opportunity to own a piece of history, with Capital One Arena announcing it is selling seats and seat cushions from the venue where some of those games were played.
Earlier this year, Monumental Sports & Entertainment — which owns the Capitals and Capital One Arena, along with the Wizards, Mystics, and other sports properties — announced plans for a $40 million renovation of the venue. The upgrades include new seats throughout the arena, and the outgoing 20-year-old seats are going up for sale.
The Washington Capitals made franchise history on June 7, winning their first ever Stanley Cup. With 44 years of pent-up desire to see the Capitals lift Lord Stanley’s cup, fans snapped up every piece of merchandise they could get their hands on, breaking records in the process.
A spokesman for Fanatics said the Capitals Stanley Cup Championship merchandise broke the e-commerce sales record set by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016. Overall sales of Stanley Cup Championship merchandise was also up 25 percent over 2017, when the Penguins won their back-to-back title.
The Washington Capitals, who have dominated the Flyers on special teams all series long, had a slow start to Game Four and could never recover. Forced to play most of the night at even strength, the Caps couldn’t generate much offense until the third period. At that point it was too late.
That’s one way to look at tonight’s game. The other? Fanatics, an official partner of the NHL, hexed the Caps.
Here’s what happened.
