Reverse Retro Rush: Capitals Fans Flock to Purchase Reverse Retro Gear On Day of Release

NHL

After much anticipation following the initial reveal and first in-game look, fans of the Washington Capitals are now able to purchase the 2022-23 Reverse Retro jersey and other gear, with products both in-person and online becoming available at 9:00 AM EST. And as one might expect, the new rendition of the Caps’ “Screaming Eagle” design are flying off the proverbial shelves.

Scenes posted to social media show Capitals fans showing up in full force to MedStar Capitals Iceplex, the team’s practice facility, and Capital One Arena, with lines already stretching as far as the eye can see.

The new design will be worn by the Capitals for seven home games this season, debuting on November 5. The team will host a “Rock the Retro” concert on November 21 to celebrate the release.

The Capitals’ team store at Capital One Arena will hosting a launch event at 10 AM, and the location at MedStar will be open until 8 PM tonight.

In addition to Shop.NHL.Com, gear is also available on Monumental Sports and Entertainment’s official shop. Adidas’ official website has already sold out.

The design is the second edition of the Reverse Retro gear produced by Adidas since taking over from Reebok as the NHL’s official merchandise and uniform manufacturer, with a Screaming Eagle collection using the team’s current red, white, and blue colors being used in 2021; that version was the NHL’s most popular.
