Kings’ Jordan Nolan Earns Disciplinary Hearing With NHL for Sucker Punch on Oilers’ Jesse Joensuu (GIF)

Jordan Nolan sucker punch

The Los Angeles Kings’ Jordan Nolan was hit with nothing more than a double-minor for roughing after cold-cocking the Oilers’ Jesse Joensuu late in the second period of last night’s game between these two Pacific Division foes.  It seemed like an incredibly lenient call at the time, and it was.  But now it looks like there could be more punishment to come from this sucker punch, as the NHL is scheduled to have a disciplinary hearing with Nolan at some point today.
