Junior Hockey Career[edit | edit source]
Jordan began his career with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in 2005–06, scoring just three goals in 33 games. He then spent two seasons with the Windsor Spitfires from 2006-2008, followed by two seasons with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds from 2008-2010.
While with the Greyhounds, Jordan was involved in an altercation with R.J. Mahalak of the Plymouth Whalers. He punched Mahalak twice in the face, giving him a concussion as he fell on the ice. As a result, he received a 20-game suspension by the OHL.
NHL Career[edit | edit source]
Jordan was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the seventh round (186th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. After the Greyhounds' season ended in 2010, he was sent to the Ontario Reign of the ECHL. Jordan only played three games with the team.
On October 5, 2010, Jordan was signed by the Los Angeles Kings to a three-year, entry-level contract. He spent the next two seasons with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League (AHL), where he totaled 14 goals and 39 points in 115 games.
On February 11, 2012, Jordan was recalled to join the Los Angeles Kings, and was assigned uniform number 71. He played his first NHL game that same day, a loss to the New York Islanders. He scored his first NHL goal the following day in a victory over the Dallas Stars.
On May 6, 2012, Nolan scored his first career NHL playoff goal, helping the Kings sweep the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs. He would later win the Stanley Cup with the Kings during the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.
