The Washington Capitals released their media guide for the 2018-19 season on Saturday morning. 


The second page includes the team photo with the Stanley Cup on the T-Mobile Arena ice in Las Vegas, where the team won their first championship on June 7, along with a full bracket from the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

You can find the 2018-19 schedule, player/management profiles, team leaders, and Capitals’ records in it. The guide also has a “year in review” section of the magical season that was the 2017-18 season. You can also find results including all the team’s draft selections,  yearly recaps, and the franchise’s all-time records against certain opponents.

Stats such as shootout, hat tricks, penalty shot records are also recorded in the 385-page guide.

You can read the profiles of the coaches and equipment staff in addition to information on the Hershey Bears, the Capitals’ AHL affiliate, and the South Carolina Stingrays, the Capitals’ ECHL affiliate.

The Capitals included information on their community work in the guide too.

In the player profiles, the guide reviews their 2017-18 season and their career. On the following page, you can find their career stats, career-splits against each individual franchise, and their career highlights (such as their most shots in a game, most points in a game, etc.). At the top of that page is that player with the Stanley Cup over their head taking their first lap with it at T-Mobile Arena.

In the middle of the guide, the team includes 2017-18 season notes, similar to what they include in their game notes. After that is the 2017-18 season timeline, which includes key dates such as Alex Ovechkin‘s hat tricks, big wins, and milestones accomplished last season. Following are last season’s individual player stats and game-by-game results.

A little bit later, they include the players’ situational stats such as how many goals they scored by period and stats such as the fastest time between goals and the fastest time the Capitals scored after an opponent scored farther down on that page.

The team has a “highs and lows” section that includes the team’s highest shot total in a period and the longest point streak from a player.

The team recaps their man games lost and summarized their transactions as well.

Towards the end of the guide, the team has two-pages dedicated to every other NHL franchise, which includes club information, when they play the Capitals this season, all-time series history, series information, and player stats vs. that team when they met in 2017-18.

After that, the team included the league directory, NHL key dates, and a list of all the on-ice officials.

At the very end, the Capitals include broadcasting information with NBC Sports Washington and 106.7 The Fan.

The guide is always linked on the right side of our home page for easy access.
