MONTREAL, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A French-language Canadian news station used the wrong logo for the Carolina Panthers during their coverage of the upcoming Super Bowl.

During their sports section, Montreal-based news station Le Téléjournal used the logo for the NHL's Florida Panthers alongside the Denver Broncos logo during their coverage of Super Bowl 50.

Canadian journalist Oliver Niquet shared an image of the mistake on sports page Sportnographe where the logo, depicting a lightly colored Florida panther as opposed to the blank panther featured in the football team's logo, can be seen.

The official Twitter page for the Florida Panthers, responded to the error with surprise as the team will likely be traveling to Detroit to face the Red Wings on Super Bowl Sunday.

"Welp, this is news to us," they wrote, accompanied by a shrugging emoticon.
