It’s official: NHL says it won’t suspend the Kings’ Jordan Nolan

The NHL said Monday afternoon it wouldn’t suspend Kings forward Jordan Nolan for his hit on Rusty Klesla of the Phoenix Coyotes in the first period of Sunday’s exhibition game at Glendale, Ariz. The league’s department of player safety reviewed the play and announced it “has determined that no supplemental discipline is appropriate.”

Meanwhile, the league did impose a 10-game regular-season ban to the Coyotes’ Paul Bissonnette for leaving the bench to join an altercation during Sunday’s game. Bissonnette drew a game misconduct for his infraction, which happened at 12:09 of the first period. Bissonnette will forfeit $37,820.51. He’s eligible to return to the lineup for an Oct. 24 game against the Kings at Staples Center.
