If you didn't know that the South Carolina Stingrays were the ECHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals, you'll have an easier time telling now.

The team, which agreed on a three-year contract extension with the Capitals in July, unveiled its new dark jersey for the 2020-21 season. In short, they are very similar to the Capitals red sweaters.



The new design features essentially the exact same colors, patterns and font. The only major difference is that the front logo is a giant stingray, which is pretty cool.


The Stingrays front office has expressed its love for the Capitals organization in the past, and it appears that they are now working to follow suit. It's hard to not want to model your team's uniform after Washington's crisp red design, as the color combination, style and simplicity all mesh together to create one of the best looks in hockey.

Now, whether one is cheering on the Capitals or the Stingrays, they can always "Rock the Red."
