Here is Jordan Nolan’s jersey and how he got to his second Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings.

Both Jordan’s father, Head Coach of the Sabres Ted Nolan, and his brother, Brandon Nolan, have played in the NHL.

Nolan joined his family as he began his career with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in 2005–06. He then spent two seasons with the Windsor Spitfires from 2006-2008, followed by two seasons with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds from 2008-2010.

Nolan was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the seventh round (186th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the next two seasons(2010-11,2011-12) with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League (AHL).

He joined the Kings was assigned the number 71, and played his first NHL game that same day on February 11, 2012. He scored his first NHL goal the following day. That season Nolan was a rookie but was a key player along with Dwight King in the Kings success for their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

On March 24, 2013, Nolan was fined $1,436.94 by the league for a cross-check to the head of Vancouver Canucks’ forward Henrik Sedin. On March 10, the NHL announced a one-game suspension for Nolan because he sucker punched unsuspecting Oilers’ forward Jesse Joensuu after a scrum near the end of the second period.

Though Nolan was a healthy scratch most the 2013-14 season and only played three playoff
s games, he stepped in during a time where players were injured and helped the Kings succeed in the quest to their second Stanley Cup.

In 134 regular season games he has 10 goals and 10 assists, and in 30 playoff contests he has a goal and an assist.
