Forward Jordan Nolan Signs With Blues

Former Kings and Sabres forward Jordan Nolan signed a league-minimum one year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues.

Jordan Nolan was a seventh-round pick of the LA Kings in the 2009 NHL Draft.  He won two Stanley Cups with the Kings, playing 20 games in the playoffs in 2012, the first of LA’s two championships.

Nolan has been used mostly as a fourth-line or bench player in his career.  He played 69 games last year in his only season with Buffalo.  He has only averaged 10+ minutes a game once.  His career-high in points is ten, which he achieved in 2013-14.

One stat he does have an impact in is the amount of hits he dishes out.  Nolan has had 100 or more hits three times, with a career-high coming last season in Buffalo with 123 hits.  The least amount of hits he has given out was 59 in his debut season, where Nolan only played 29 games.

The Blue’s new acquisition has played 361 games in seven years.  He has tallied 50 points and 596 hits in this time.
