The NHL on Tuesday unveiled the name and logo of its newest team, the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

The Knights are hockey's first expansion team since 2000 and will field a roster through an expansion draft next summer, reports USA Today. It was a great moment for Las Vegas; the Knights are Sin City's first major professional sports team.

But we can always count on the internet to find something to troll. In this case, it's that Golden Knights logo.

"I haven't shown (the logo) to many people," Knights owner Bill Foley said in a video from the NHL preceding Tuesday's announcement. "But everyone I've shown it to just looks at it says, 'Wow. This is going to be fantastic. This is going to be great.'"

Well, the Twitter-verse had other things to say. It spewed out some apt comparisons to the Knights' new logo.

The Golden Knights — not the Men of Gondor, the Fetts or the Goldeen Knights — will take the ice next season in T-Mobile Arena.
