Stoughton youth hockey battles over giant jersey mistake

The president of Stoughton?s non-profit hockey club said the league wants a Minnesota-based sports clothing company to refund hundreds of dollars they have spent altering giant youth jerseys.

�?It has been the biggest pain I?ve ever had in 10 years of hockey,? Stoughton Youth Hockey President Wade Rewey said.

Rewey said he saw Minnesota-based Breakaway Sportswear jerseys on a number of teams while attending a hockey tournament with his son in Minnesota.

?Checked the kids that were wearing them. The sizes looked good. The quality looked good,? Rewey said.

After sending a sample of their old youth XL jersey, thinking that would help Breakaway Sportswear size them, he decided to send almost $3,500 so 24 jerseys could be ordered for the 9-12-year-olds on the team.
