The Washington Capitals released their much anticipated third jerseys on Monday morning. Key design elements include the W with the Washington Monument integrated as part of crest and blue jersey color.

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will wear their third jersey presented by Capital One and modeled after the team’s 2018 NHL Stadium Series jersey, for seven home dates during the 2020-21 season, senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan announced today. The jersey will be worn across the next three seasons.

The blue jersey will be worn once against each team in the East division, debuting tomorrow vs. the New York Islanders.

The large W on the front of the jersey serves as a tribute to Washington, D.C., with the Washington monument structure peaking in the middle of the W. The “W” stands alone as a Capital Letter to symbolize the strength of the nation’s Capital. The color scheme is aligned with the United States of America’s flag; with each color also representing attributes displayed by Capitals fans: red stands for dedication, white represents loyalty and blue honors community. The Three Stars represent Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

During select games the third jersey is worn, the Capitals will honor a frontline worker as the team’s Blue Star of the Game. The Blue Star of the Game will be spotlighted, receive a jersey and be an honorary member of the game’s starting lineup in honor of their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
