Jordan Nolan's sucker punch of Edmonton's Jesse Joensuu has resulted in a one-game suspension for the Kings forward.

In coming to the decision for the one-game ban, the NHL's Department of Player Safety noted that the scrum taking place in front of the Kings net was all but concluded. Further, Joensuu had both of his arms being restrained by the officials when Nolan, out of nowhere, delivered a hard punch right to the jaw.

Eastily it could have been worse than just one game for Nolan in this case but forutnately for everybody, Joensuu wasn't seriously hurt, though surely his jaw was feeling a little sore afterward.

In addition to the suspension, Nolan was fine one game's salary of $3,589.74.
