Kings forward Jordan Nolan suspended 1 game for punching Oilers' Joensuu

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.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
