As noted, it’s expected the Capitals and Hurricanes will release more information on the new uniforms later today.
ESPN will broadcast the 2023 NHL Stadium Series game between the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes at Carter-Finley Stadium on the campus of NC State on February 18.
I’m undecided whether I like them as a fan who might wear one, but I think both jerseys will look pretty great on TV and to fans sitting high up in the stadium on game day.
That’s likely a big part of the design philosophy – huge logos broad color swatches, etc.
With ya Lance. I think I’ll save my $$ on this one.
I don’t even hate ‘em. They just look like a generic practice jersey you’d get at Target. The uni squad is totally out of control at NHL HQ.
Lance has it right a practice jersey. One would think that the NHL pushing the Stadium Series so much would come out with a better sweater than that. Buy it….heck NO! The NHL can have those ugly things!!
I actually like the Caps one, but I’ve always liked the eagle logos — both the weagle and screagle — more than the wordscript. The most interesting part is the stitching on the eagle’s head.
As to buying one? Nah… $190 is ridiculously expensive, plus I’ve never bought any of them — the only sweaters/jerseys I have are the ones the Caps gave to STHs… which I never wore anyway. But I’m sure the NHL will sell enough of them to convince them to do more specials ones next year… or maybe even this year… there’s still plenty of time to design and SELLLLLLL!!!!!!! yet another version!
I just think it’s stupid to come up w a new jersey for one game. Wear the navy.
Well, will be easy to tell the two teams apart. I’m never in favor of enlarged logos. I think with the logo on the back it might be a good sweatshirt or jacket. Still, it’s not as bad as all the other ones I have seen lately, especially all those with a word in front.
Your link only brings you to hurricanes jersey. btw I like these myself.
Thanks Mark, they changed the site. We are searching for Caps link. Caps said noon they will be available.
Got it Thanks.
Here ya go Mark:
Hate to say this but agree with others that it looks like a practice sweater. To me it would be better just to go with the teams 3rd jersey rather than make something like this just to make the league money. Honestly this is a disgrace and the NHL can do better than this ugly sweater!
I like this design! Stadium Series jersey design is an opportunity to be more experimental, unlike the regular, 3rd, or Winter Classic jerseys and this certainly fits the billing!
Adidas will make next year’s jerseys and then they are gone, right?
Hate to say but instead of inventing “new” jersey designs,why not stick with teams base colours & do Alternate version like 80’s caps jersey’s but instead of white & red base’s try blue with white & red stars!!
To a point fans going to game that are able are going to have to pick which jersey from last 10 years thier going to wear!!
