The Washington Capitals have announced their promotional schedule for the upcoming season. For those seeking freebies to accompany their game experiences, here are the giveaway dates:
- October 9 (Opening Night) – Schedule Magnet
- November 3 – Scarf (pictured at right)
- April 2 – Nicklas Backstrom Bobblehead
The annual Canned Food Drive (11/20) and Toy Drive (12/11) often provide posters or other items to those who donate. Poster or no, it’s a great way to help those in need—so clear out those cupboards and get to a toy store. Numerous charity auction nights are on the calendar too, for those looking to snag jerseys, sticks, gift baskets, etc.
Other events of note are on the schedule include “Turn Back The Clock” night with Dino Ciccarelli on 2/1 (with old-school sweaters worn in-game, perhaps? Fingers crossed.).
[Note: Per the team, the event will be to honor Ciccarelli’s induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame. It is not, however, a jersey-retirement ceremony.]
