When the Golden Knights took the ice against the Anaheim Ducks Thursday night, the team debuted gold chrome helmets that were for lack of a better word bright.
The Golden Knights definitely came out looking very flashy, and Twitter users had quite a bit to say regarding the brightly-colored helmets. Vegas' official Twitter account even made a joke about the opposing team seeing their future in the helmets themselves.
The majority of the opinions were that the helmets were very gaudy, but there were a few fans who liked the shiny new lids.
If were looking to symbolize the gaudy excess a lot of people not from here envision when they think of Vegas...mission accomplished.— Jonathan (@jdcnlv) February 12, 2021

Horribly ugly and weird, but because it’s Vegas I guess we have to pretend that it’s edgy and awesome.— Jamie Elmhirst (@jelm_jelm) February 12, 2021
