Rookie Twitter hazing in the form of #DUMBA55


Wild rookie Matt Dumba is experiencing things that most 18 year olds never will. He's on an NHL roster, skating with superstars and has his name on the back of a professional hockey sweater.

Unfortunately, it's the last part that's getting him grief from his teammates and fans.

His last name is Dumba. His number is 55. The hashtag being used on Twitter about his number is "#DUMBA55." Does that look like another word to you?

We're still not sure if Dumba picked his own number or someone picked it for him. Either way it's pretty funny.

Check out a few of the tweets, including one from Dumba's teammate, Zenon Konopka.
