BELLEVILLE SEN­A­TORS | 2017-18

WHILE AHL TEAMS are a source of pride for the cities they rep­re­sent, they’re also strongly linked to the NHL clubs for which they de­velop play­ers (a mis­sion that can even su­percede winning, in some cases). So it’s al­ways fun when the AHL squad takes its uni­form cues from the par­ent.

The Belleville Sen­a­tors are a brand-new af­fil­i­ate for Ot­tawa, and for their in­au­gu­ral jer­sey, they’ve taken the clas­sic throw­back look of the NHL team and re­placed the ‘O’ with a ‘B.’ I never un­der­stood Ot­tawa’s worry about the ‘O’ be­ing mis­taken for a zero. It's a sharp sweater the Sens should wear more of­ten. Now Belleville can rock a deriva­tion of it with pride.
