Devils, Capitals among first NHL teams to unveil ads on helmets

At this point in time, it is unclear how many NHL teams will follow the New Jersey Devils and Washington Capitals when they put ads on helmets. (However, given the league's COVID-era financial constraints, it would be surprising if an NHL team suspended this.)
