Say hello to Chance, the Vegas Golden Knights’ bizarre new mascot

Vegas Golden Knights

Before their home game against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night the Vegas Golden Knights revealed their new mascot.

I know, I know. It is going to be some Sir Lancelot looking dude riding around on a horse, or something. Right?

*buzzer sound*


It is this thing.

Chance is apparently a Gila Monster, a venomous (but lazy!) lizard that lives in the southwestern United States.

There really is not much else to add here, is there?
