Matt Niskanen Bobblehead On the Way

Posted December 31, 2014

The bobblehead for the next Washington Capitals Inova Blood Drive has been revealed, and it is of new Caps defensemen Matt Niskanen. The bobblehead features Niskanen in the Caps’ new Winter Classic uniform with his hockey stick down on the ice. It looks like this bobble may be coming from the same company that produced the Winter Classic bobblehead of Nicklas Backstrom. This comes as a bit of a surprise as it’s Niskanen’s first year on the Caps but, since he’s signed to a longterm deal, it’s justified.

This also means no more bobbles from Bobble Factory for the time being, which was the company that Inova frequently had issues with from sticks breaking when they were often being stuck in customs. Judging from the picture, they may have returned to the company Pro Sport Image which produced many of the older bobbles such as Brooks Laich, Alex Semin, and Semyon Varlamov. This bobblehead will hopefully be available on January 31st when Inova hosts another blood drive at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
