Alex Ovechkin wants the Capitals to bring back the Reverse Retro 2.0 jersey next season. He scored in every game he’s worn it.
Alex Ovechkin is one of the greatest goal-scorers of all time. He’s scored at a high clip in every jersey he’s worn no matter if it’s been the white Screaming Eagle, the red Capitals wordmark, or the blue W alternate sweaters.
But there’s been something special about the Caps’ Reverse Retro 2.0 jersey this season. Not only do they look stunning on the ice, but the sweater is nostalgic for Ovi. It features the logo he wore as a rookie in the NHL flipped with the team’s black Capitol Dome jersey from the 90s and 00s.
In 2020, Ovi personally asked the Capitals to bring the Screaming Eagle back on Instagram.
“@capitals the best one my 1st year 🙏🙏❤️️❤️️” Ovechkin wrote. In a second comment, he added, “lets make it happen… say yes pls… we all want it.”
The Capitals acquiesced to his request and for both of their Reverse Retro jerseys.
In this year’s edition, Ovechkin scored in every game he wore it – an astounding 11 goals in seven games. He also accomplished some incredible history along the way, too.
