Look: Ville Leino designs hoodie depicting time with Sabres as jail

BILLEBEINO ART SERIES: JAIL (2013). "One of my most personal works. I was playing my third year in Buffalo Sabres with long and big contract. Things weren't working with me and the team. I was getting a lot of pressure and heat and there was no way out of it. I felt trapped and down. All I could do was get up every morning and go to work and try to make it work. This painting reflects those feelings that I was going through on that perioid of time." - Ville Leino. This one of a kind limited edition (70 pieces per print) is available only at the Billebeino Helsinki Pop Up store from 16th of May till 30th.

Ville Leino feels like he was behind bars as a member of the Buffalo Sabres.

The former NHL forward expressed some strong opinions about his disappointing tenure with the club via a new hooded sweatshirt he designed for his fashion company, Billebeino, based on a painting called "Jail" he finished in 2013.

Leino was one of the first major acquisitions of Terry Pegula's ownership, signing a six-year, $27-million contract with the Sabres in July 2011.

He never lived up to the hefty deal, though, posting a mere 10 goals and 46 points in 137 games with the club over three seasons before being bought out.

If it's any consolation for Leino, his company appears to be doing well, with more than 20,000 Instagram followers and several NHLers - including P.K. Subban and Dustin Byfuglien - rocking threads he designed this season.
