When the Vegas Golden Knights unveiled Chance the gila monster mascot, let’s just say the debut was greeted with a mixed reaction.

 

But the Golden Knights were undeterred.

Chance took some criticism, but now he has his own bobblehead.

 

They had some fun with Chance, sharing laughs with a funny “mean tweets” video.

 

And now the first-place, first-year team is breaking new franchise ground with its first-ever bobblehead — and it will be Chance, not Marc-Andre Fleury, William “Wild Bill/Dollar Bill” Karlsson or James Neal.

The Golden Knights’ first bobblehead — Chance the mascot.

 

Each fan at a Feb. 19 Golden Knights-Anaheim Ducks game at T-Mobile Arena will receive the Chance bobblehead. Chance is doing a muscle pose and is decked out in the white away Golden Knights jersey.

LVSportsBiz.com will even speculate that the Chance haters will want a piece of this bobblehead.
