Today on TXHT Jersey Share we take a look at a Washington Capitals retro red jersey customized to Capitals Legend Peter Bondra.
So I actually haven’t touched base on this jersey outside of the Capitals alternate jersey, but this jersey is what the Capitals wore from when they entered the league in 1974 all the way up to 1995. This is the only one I have from the NHL Vintage Series, and when I had the opportunity to I had is customized to my favorite player of all time Peter Bondra.
Bondra is someone I tried to emulate my game after in ice hockey, except I didn’t exactly have the skill set like Bondra to pull it off. *laughs*
One of my most fundest memories of seeing Bondra play live was the game against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the old Capital Centre then known as US Air Arena when he would score 5 goals against the Lightning. Bondra also shot a puck over the boards during pregame warmups and I got the puck. Still have it to this day in safe keeping.
