Matt Niskanen Stanley Cup Bobblehead Review

The Washington Capitals are Stanley Cup Champions and that means one thing… WE GET BOBBLEHEADS! As we detailed already, there are going to be 24 Stanley Cup-themed bobbleheads, produced by FOCO, available come September. Since that’s still a ways away we thought it would be fun to spend that time taking a closer look at each bobblehead included in this lineup.

The calmness to the storm that is Dmitry Orlov’s style of play, Matt Niskanen. Together the two shut down elite players for countless games and helped to take the Capitals to their first Stanley Cup. Niskanen has always been a quiet player on and off the ice but sometimes it’s better to put most of your energy into incredible defensive play in these NHL playoffs. It definitely paid off.

Niskanen, to us at least, helps distinguish himself with his shaved head which sadly can’t be seen under the helmet that all of these bobbleheads are wearing. However, the astute, calm look on his face helps to capture the emotions that he generally displays during games and interviews. If you get and Orlov bobblehead, you’ve got to get a Niskanen to go with it.

You can order this, and many others, from the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
