There’s a reason they are called the Vegas “Golden” Knights. The NHL expansion franchise unveiled its first third jerseys in franchise history on Thursday afternoon. The third jersey is the first all-metallic gold jersey in the history of the NHL.

Here’s a look at the jerseys from the Golden Knights Twitter account:

This is how the jerseys will look when worn by a player:

The jersey is also unique when it comes to the material used for the design. The jersey is the first-of-its kind metallic knit iteration of the adidas ADIZERO authentic jersey.

Here’s what Golden Knights Chief Marketing Officer Brian Killingsworth said about the jerseys in the team’s official press release:

“The character and qualities of our team’s official third jersey are symbolic of our entire organization, as well as the great city of Las Vegas,” Killingsworth said. “The ideation behind the jersey, which was created and came to life with the help of adidas and support from the NHL, is bold and bright just like the community that we are all proud to call home. It is truly reflective of the sports and entertainment capital of the world and reinforces the Vegas Golden Knights’ push for innovation. The third jersey advances our brand and is the perfect way to represent the pride we all share in being #VegasBorn.”

The Golden Knights will wear these jerseys with their white gloves that are usually worn with their road uniforms.
