Huge hit from behind sparks fighting between Sudbury Wolves and Danish U-20 team (VIDEO)

The OHL's Sudbury Wolves are in Omsk, Russia right now, representing Canada at the Junior Club World Cup. They recently survived the Round Robin portion of the tournament with a 7-2 win over the Denmark.

But don't let the score or the opponent fool you -- it wasn't easy. Denmark may typically be known as pushovers, but they've been competitive in all three of their games. A little dirty, too. Enjoy this brutal check from behind by Danish center Mortin Skov on Wolves' defenceman Justin Sefton that kicks off a minor fracas:

This hit would have come as a surprise to anyone that's bought into the way the tournament's organizers have been selling the Wolves. They've been billed as the dirty team since they arrived. From the Sudbury Star:

The Wolves are being billed by tournament organizers as a bloodthirsty bunch, if the team's bio on the tournament website is any indicator.

"One landmark of the club is its fighting spirit and aggressive checking style," the bio, accompanied by a fight photo, reads in part. "For illustration, Sudbury Wolves set the dirtiest league all-time record combining for a total of 427 penalty minutes in one match!"

Clearly the organizers didn't do their research. (Further proof: the site refers to the team multiple times as the "Sadbury Wolves".) Denmark are the real killers in Omsk.

Granted, it's easy to jump to these sorts of conclusions when the Wolves' logo literally has blood on it. Seriously, what's up with that?
