Nylander deactivates Twitter account after learning of derogatory meaning

Tom Szczerbowski / USA TODAY Sports

William Nylander is done with Twitter, or at least with his Twitter handle.

The Toronto Maple Leafs prized rookie deactivated his account at the request of the club after it was brought to light that "Snizzbone" can be considered a derogatory term, Yahoo's Dhiren Mahiban reports.

Nylander, 19, unaware of any crude second meaning, has stated previously it was a nickname given to him when he was younger.

There's no timeline for his return to the social media website.
