The Washington Capitals unveiled new uniforms from Adidas late Tuesday, making minor tweaks to the jerseys’ appearance. 

The main difference comes in the collar and the room above the Capitals’ logo in the center of the jersey.

The old Reebok jerseys also had more of a V-shape with the stripes and the “Weagle” logo is higher up on the shoulder. 

The NHL switched to Adidas from Reebok for the 2017-18 season and beyond, with the two having a seven-year partnership. Besides the visual differences, the Adidas jerseys are advertised as lighter, cooler and stronger.
