Red Wings denounce use of logo at white nationalist rally

The Detroit Red Wings have issued a statement saying the National Hockey League franchise was "not associated" in any way with white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va. after several were seen carrying shields bearing the club's logo.

The team immediately released a statement denouncing any involvement with their actions and what happened in the riots.

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".
