ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will wear their new third jersey, modeled after the team’s original red jersey, for 15 select home games during the 2015-16 season, senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan announced today.
The primary color for the uniform is red and closely resembles the team’s jersey worn from 1974-75 through 1994-95. The original Capitals wordmark is featured on the front of the jersey with six stars above it and five stars beneath the numbers on each sleeve. The Capitals will wear blue pants and red helmets with their third jerseys. The new third jersey will replace the white third jersey the Capitals wore from 2011-12 to 2014-15.
The Capitals’ third jerseys are available at Verizon Center and Kettler Capitals Iceplex team stores. For a photo gallery of the Capitals’ new third jersey, click here.
