NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Los Angeles Kings forward Jordan Nolan for one game for punching an Oilers forward.

Nolan will lose $3,589 in salary.

Late in the second period of the Kings' 4-2 win at Edmonton on Sunday, Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings' net. Joensuu's arms were tied up by a linesman when he was struck by Nolan.

Nolan was assessed a double-minor for roughing. He will miss the Kings' game Monday night in Calgary.
