CAPS: Washington Capitals Host Columbus Blue Jackets in Baltimore Hockey Classic

The Caps are coming back to Baltimore for the Baltimore Hockey Classic! The Washington Capitals will face the Columbus Blue Jackets in a preseason game on Sept. 26, 2012 at 1st Mariner Arena at 7 p.m.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Monday, April 23 at 10 a.m.

“We are excited to return to Baltimore,” said Capitals president Dick Patrick. “The overwhelming support from the city of Baltimore and our fans in Maryland made this decision to return for a second-consecutive season an easy one.”

Last year’s inaugural Baltimore Hockey Classic, which featured the Nashville Predators and Washington Capitals kicking off the Capitals’ 2011-12 preseason schedule, sold out as the capacity crowd of 11,082 fans enjoyed the first professional hockey game played in Baltimore since 1997.
