One day after being named the first coach in Vegas Golden Knights history, Gerard Gallant got to see his new home.

Gallant was in Las Vegas on Friday, touring the team's new practice facility and getting a taste of what the city has to offer.

After a quick look at his new office at the team's practice facility in Summerlin, Nevada, Gallant got to meet one of the Vegas regulars, Britney Spears.

Well, at least he got to meet her wax likeness.

"We look good together, eh?" Gallant told Sportsnet 590.

Gallant, who previously coached the Florida Panthers from 2014-16, was named coach of the Golden Knights on Thursday. As he departed to coach Canada at the upcoming 2017 IIHF World Championship in Cologne, Germany, and Paris, he recorded a message to the fans of the Golden Knights, who begin play in October as the NHL's 31st team.
