Jordan Nolan (born June 23, 1989) is a professional Canadian ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by Los Angeles in the 7th round (186th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.[1]

Junior career[]

Nolan began his career with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in 2005-06, scoring just three goals in 33 games. 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. While with the Greyhounds, Nolan was involved in an altercation with R.J. Mahalak of the Plymouth Whalers. Nolan punched Mahalak twice in the face, giving him a concussion as he fell on the ice. As a result, Nolan received a 20-game suspension by the OHL.[2]

Professional career[]

Nolan was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the seventh round (186th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. After the Greyhounds' season ended in 2010, Nolan was sent to the Ontario Reign of the ECHL. He only played three games with the team. On October 5, 2010, Nolan was signed by the Los Angeles Kings to a three-year, entry-level contract.[3]

He spent the next two seasons with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League (AHL), where he totaled 14 goals and 39 points in 115 games. On February 11, 2012, Nolan was recalled to join the Los Angeles Kings, and was assigned uniform number 71. He played his first NHL game that same day, a loss to the New York Islanders. He scored his first NHL goal the following day in a victory over the Dallas Stars.

On May 6, 2012, Nolan scored his first career NHL playoff goal, helping the Kings sweep the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs.[4]


Both Jordan's father, Ted Nolan, and his brother, Brandon Nolan, have played in the National Hockey League. [5]

He is a First Nation Ojibwe on his father's side of the family.[6]

Jordan is also a First Nation Maliseet on his mother's side from St. Mary's First Nation in Fredericton, NB
