Back In Black! Capitals Debut New Reverse Retro Uniforms Tonight

The Capitals return home tonight and begin a four-game home stand when they host the Arizona Coyotes at Capital One Arena. The game will also feature the debut of the team’s latest “Reverse Retro” uniforms.

“We are thrilled to unveil this year’s Capitals Reverse Retro jersey with adidas and the NHL and pay tribute to our first rebrand and such an important period in our team history,” said Monumental Sports & Entertainment Chief Marketing Officer Hunter Lochmann said in a statement.

In addition to tonight, the team will wear the new uniforms on Nov. 25 vs. Calgary Flames, Dec. 9 vs. Seattle Kraken, Dec. 23 vs. Winnipeg Jets, Dec. 31 vs. Montreal Canadiens, Jan. 3 vs. Buffalo Sabres, Jan. 14 vs. Philadelphia Flyers.

“Following the success of our popular first Reverse Retro jersey in the red color scheme featuring the screaming eagle, we wanted to merge our original jerseys introduced in 1995 with the design. We’re excited not only to see their debut at Capital One Arena on Nov. 5, but also to throwback to the past throughout the season with a related theme night, programming and all-arena giveaways that celebrate the jersey and its history. Most importantly, unlike 2020, the fans will be able to see these great screaming eagle jerseys in person at Capital One Arena.”

The Capitals wore black uniforms from 1997-2007 before rebranding to their current home uniforms.

The uniform will come with black pants and socks, which the players wore in recent practices.

They will be available beginning on Tuesday, November 15.

    Blah. If Black is your primary color, fine. Otherwise, don’t use it.
