In response, the NHL's Detroit Red Wings issued a statement Saturday condemning the bastardized use of their logo in such a hateful way and threatened legal action.

A video on the scene from a Huffington Post reporter showed multiple people at the rally holding up a sign with the team's logo on it white chanting "blood and soil".

The Red Wings released a statement after members of one of the right-wing groups that descended upon Charlottesville this weekend were seen carrying white shields with the Red Wings logo on the front.

Premier League new boys Huddersfield have three points on the board after a terrific 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Turns out Morata can play, and his diving header met a classy bit of playmaking from Willian to make it 3-1 in the 69th minute.

There is a Michigan-based white nationalist group called the Detroit Right Wings that uses a logo almost identical to that of the Red Wings.

On Saturday, a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent as protesters and counter protesters clashed, causing the state's governor to declare a state of emergency. The rally was organized to protest the college town's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park.

Charlottesville has declared a local emergency because of the conflicts between the two groups. Fights broke out Friday night when hundreds of white nationalists marched through the UVA campus carrying torches.
