From the Capitals:

“The Washington Capitals, the National Hockey League (NHL) and adidas today unveiled their uniform for the 2023 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series game. Specifically designed for the Saturday, Feb. 18, game, the uniforms will make their on-ice debut when the Capitals take on the Carolina Hurricanes outdoors at Carter-Finley Stadium on the campus of North Carolina State University at 8 p.m. In addition, the Capitals will also wear the uniform at Capital One Arena on Tuesday, Feb. 21, vs. the Detroit Red Wings.

For the Capitals 2023 NHL Stadium Series jersey, adidas extended the size of the Washington Capitals’ beloved current secondary logo, known as the ‘Weagle,’ from seam to seam on the front of the jersey and onto the sleeves, where the tips of the wings meet the player numbers. The enormous crest was developed through a combination of sublimation and classic twill embroidery. Sublimation allows for large scale art and was used to create the wings and body. Twill and embroidery add dimension and quality and were used to create the head of the eagle.

The three bands of color in the sleeve are a nod to the oversize, three-color banded hem on the inaugural Capitals’ sweater. The two horizontal laces represent the two red bands on the D.C. flag. The inside neck features the ‘W’ and stars crest from the Capitals’ 2018 NHL Stadium Series jersey.

“We are thrilled to unveil the 2023 Stadium Series uniform with the fan-favorite Weagle front and center,” said Hunter Lochmann, Monumental Sports & Entertainment Chief Marketing Officer. “The bold design allows the Weagle to take center stage as the focal point of the jersey and set itself apart in the stadium atmosphere. We are excited for our players and fans alike to wear these jerseys and represent the Capitals and D.C., starting with the outdoor game on February 18 before being worn on home ice on February 21.”

A limited amount of Capitals Stadium Series jerseys will be available at The Team Store at Capital One Arena and at the Team Store at MedStar Capitals Iceplex beginning Jan. 26. The Team Store at Capital One Arena will open at noon on Jan. 26 and be open throughout the Caps game that night, while the Team Store at Medstar Capitals Iceplex will open at 9 a.m., with the jerseys available beginning at noon. In addition, jerseys will also be available online at and beginning at noon.

The Capitals have won each of their previous three outdoor games. Washington defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in the 2011 NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in the 2015 NHL Winter Classic at Nationals Park in Washington, and the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 in the 2018 NHL Stadium Series at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland.”
