JER­SEY HOUND

DETROIT BELLE TIRE | 2016-17

The Hockey News - - BUZZ -

The Belle Tire pro­gram in Detroit has pro­duced NHLers such as Torey Krug, Dy­lan Larkin and Zach Weren­ski, but last year one of the play­ers pro­duced some­thing for Belle Tire it­self.

A.J. Wolfe, cap­tain of the Belle Tire ma­jor midget squad, de­signed a jer­sey for the team, putting the Belle Tire mas­cot front and cen­ter. The pro­gram is named af­ter a prom­i­nent Michigan tire company, and while cor­po­rate lo­gos on jer­seys is a thorny is­sue, it works in this case be­cause the lit­tle guy has a fun, old-school vibe. In terms of the rest of the sweater, the main stripe be­hind the crest is solid and sim­ple, while Wolfe kept the pro­gram’s script logo on the shoul­der. – RYAN KENNEDY
