There are few things cuter than a small child getting a fist bump from their favorite NHL player as they head out the tunnel. 

The difference between arm size and fist size, the eager grin on the child and the look they give their parents afterward. All of it is an adorable, memorable moment for any young fan. But the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night did not fist bump a child. Well, a human one that is.

As members of the Sharks walked out to the ice, they got a little inspiration ... or fear ... or confusion as to what year it is from a baby T-Rex on Tuesday night before their game with the Edmonton Oilers. It was a bizarre scene of which none of the players appeared too fazed. Business as usual it seems in San Jose.
