Kuemper pays tribute to Olaf Kolzig with special mask originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
The Capitals will be debuting their black Reverse Retro jersey for Saturday's game against the Arizona Coyotes, but that's not the only tribute to the past we will see on the ice. Goalie Darcy Kuemper will be wearing a special goalie mask in tribute to franchise great Olaf Kolzig.
Olaf Kolzig spent 16 seasons with the Capitals playing in 711 games and earning the Vezina Trophy in 2000.
"Godzilla" took note of the tribute and showed his thanks to Kuemper.
