Washington Capitals Primary Logo 1996 - 1997

The Capitals changed their colors and logo in the mid-90s as black became popular in the NHL. At least the streaking eagle is a logo, as opposed to the wordmark that just spells out the team name. The stars made their first appearance on this logo and though the design turned away from the lettering that had preceded it, “CAPITALS” is still a prominent feature in this one.
