The Washington Capitals will wear a third jersey modeled after their 2011 Winter Classic sweater for 16 road games during the 2011-12 season.

The primary color for the uniform is white and closely resembles the team’s original jersey, worn from 1974-75 through 1994-95. The original Capitals wordmark is featured on the front of the jersey with six stars above it and five stars beneath the numbers on each sleeve.

The Capitals will wear red pants and white helmets with their new third jerseys.
