On Saturday morning, several marchers were seen carrying the Detroit Red Wings logo, an incongruous symbol among the more blatant displays of Nazism.

The team said in a statement it "vehemently" disagrees with the rally and is in no way associated with it.

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 Red Wings were quick to respond with a statement, saying the team is "exploring legal action". "We have immediately begun to explore all potential legal options and intend to take whatever actions are necessary to address the offensive and unauthorized use of our property".

On Saturday, fights erupted and a few people were injured after a white supremacists group and counter protesters clashed in Charlottesville, Virginia, forcing local police and Gov. Terry McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency.

"A right-wing blogger said he planned the "pro-white" rally to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park", ESPN reported.
