Vegas Golden Knights sassy Twitter account trolls Canucks during blowout win

Sep 18 2017, 9:44 am

As far as debut performances for expansion teams go, it doesn’t get much better than a 9-4 win.

That’s how the Vegas Golden Knights introduced themselves to the NHL on Sunday, albeit in preseason, against a Canucks team with a depleted lineup.

It was Vancouver – not Vegas – that looked like the expansion team on the ice at Rogers Arena. That’s for good reason, as nearly every player that will be in the Canucks’ opening night lineup was on a plane to China, in advance of a pair of exhibition games in Shanghai and Beijing.

Think that matters to whoever runs Vegas’ sassy social media accounts? Not a chance.

The Golden Knights’ Twitter account has quickly become the best in the league. You knew they’d have something hilarious for the Canucks as they made their debut, and they didn’t disappoint.

Here’s a selection of their best tweets, many of which were at the Canucks’ expense.

The Canucks tried poking fun at the NHL’s newest team early…

…but of course they had a rebuttal…

The Canucks will get a chance at revenge with Vegas on November 16, when the Golden Knights visit Rogers Arena for the first time during the regular season.
