Announced back in October, the Washington Capitals revealed their new "Reverse Retro" jerseys for the first time today.
A 15-second video posted by the team on Twitter (see above) shows off the new jerseys in detail.
The new design brings back the "screaming eagle" design from the 2000's but eschews the white, teal and gold colorway for the teams current palette of red, navy blue and white.
Monumental Sports and Entertainment Chief Marketing Officer Hunter Lochmann says:
“We are excited to unveil the Capitals Reverse Retro jersey that showcases a significant era of our team history. Working closely with adidas and the NHL, our goal was to pay tribute to our 97-98 team, refreshing the jersey design and, most importantly, following through on the feedback from our fanbase by reinstating the iconic Screaming Eagle. We are extremely proud of the Capitals Reverse Retro jersey and look forward to seeing its debut on-ice during the 2020-21 season.”
The Caps are planning on wearing the new sweaters during "select games" during the upcoming 2020-21 season, which does not yet have a start date but is expected to be in January due to the delay of the 2019-20 season due to COVID-19.
