Fanatics Launches NHL Reverse Retro jerseys and merch through its online store, shop.nhl.com, at 9 a.m. Tuesday. A few minutes later, Capitals Reverse Retro merchandise such as jackets, T-shirts, hats, and throws was filling up. But there was a technical glitch that – according to our fanatic rep – caused the Capitals RR 2.0 jerseys to be sold exclusively at Until shortly after 11 am. The Capitals are one of the rare NHL teams that fanatics use another branded online store that allows MSE to have a single online marketplace for the merchandise of all its franchises including the Wizards, Mystics, Go-Go and online gaming teams.

The original Alex Ovechkin Reverse Retro 2.0 T-shirt was sold out by the time it was posted on shop.nhl.com shortly after 11am. And the original jerseys on display at two fanatics stores (NHL Shop/Monumental) sold out shortly after noon.

Despite the confusion, a source told RMNB that the Capitals had huge sales on the first day.

There are two practical examples I could find to highlight this. Sidney Crosby And the Connor McDavid Original RR 2.0 Shirt It is still available online in all sizes while Ovechkin sold out before noon. Crosby and McDavid are stars similar to Ovechkin in terms of both skill and popularity. This makes me think the demand for Screaming Eagle merchandise is off the charts.

The Capitals also released Reverse Retro jerseys at two brick-and-mortar team stores, the Capital One Arena and the MedStar Capitals Iceplex, at various times this morning. At COA, there were long lines outside before the doors opened around 10am.

“I got there about 9 a.m. and the line was already at corner 7 and F, about 200 feet,” Matt Pennebaker said. They started letting people in a minute or two before 10 am, and by that time the line was about twice as long. I arrived at about 10:20. All that said, things ran smoothly, and there was plenty of inventory.”
