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?
