Nolan potted his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Oilers.

Pretty much everyone on the Kings got into the act in this one, including Nolan, a fourth-line grinder. Offense typically doesn't come easy for Nolan by virtue of his low minutes total, as evidenced by his mere eight points in 55 games.

Playing in his 41st game of the season, Nolan finally picked up his first assist of the year Tuesday in a win over the Oilers.

Hey, isn't that nice. Nolan had scored four goals in his first 40 games, but effective playmaking had eluded him. Don't expect much more offense from the gritty winger, whose career high is 10 points; he offers modest utility in the PIM and hits categories, and that's about it.

Nolan potted his second goal of the season and piled up five hits in Saturday's loss to the Bruins.

Nolan has sat out roughly half the Kings' games this season, entering the lineup typically when another forward or two is nursing an injury. With Tanner Pearson (leg) likely out for the season, Nolan should enjoy more regular action the rest of the way, but he's not likely to offer many useful numbers given his light minutes on the checking line.

Nolan (suspension) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Islanders, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.

With Justin Williams (eye) deemed unavailable Thursday, it looks like Nolan will slot in on the Kings' top line, an unusual assignment for the fourth-liner. It seems likely that coach Darryl Sutter could alternate an assortment of players into wing spot alongside Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik throughout the evening, making it unlikely that Nolan sees the full 16 minutes of ice time Williams had been averaging this season.

Jordan Nolan was a healthy scratch on Sunday.

He was joined in the press box by Linden Vey and Tanner Pearson. Just an FYI in case you took any of the three late in your playoff pool and was wondering why they were not in the lineup. Nolan played in Game 1 and was in the press box as coach Darryl Sutter went with seven defensemen in the lineup.
