The team released a statement saying they "are not associated in any way" with what is going on in Charlottesville.

The Detroit Red Wings are considering legal action to stop white nationalists from using their logo as part of a "disturbing" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Red Wings believe that hockey is for everyone and we celebrate the diversity of our fan base and our nation.

The NHL stood by the team in denouncing the use of the logo.

"This specific use is particularly offensive because it runs counter to the inclusiveness that our league values and champions", NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press via email, according to ESPN.

The NHL team condemned a white nationalist group's use of its logo Saturday at the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va. "We will take immediate and all necessary steps to insure the use is discontinued as promptly as possible, and will vigorously pursue other remedies, as appropriate".

A MI white supremacist organization called the Detroit Right Wings descended on Charlottesville, Va., with signs using the logo for the NHL's Detroit Red Wings.

The university called off all sports events Saturday, including a men's soccer exhibition game against Wright State.
