Sabres claim Jordan Nolan

The Buffalo Sabres have claimed former Los Angeles Kings forward, Jordan Nolan off waivers today. Nolan has spent the past six season with the Kings serving mostly on the fourth line, adding grit and two-way ability to the lineup. At 6’3″ and 219lbs, the 28-year-old certainly knows how to throw the body around and will likely serve as a rotational player on the checking line for the Sabres.

This signing could spell the end for Nic Deslauriers as they would serve nearly identical roles on the roster. Though Nolan won’t wow anyone on the score sheet (42 points in 292 career games), he is certainly an upgrade from Deslauriers who has failed to make effective strides at the NHL level. Nolan has one season remaining on his current contract at $950,000.

For those wondering, yes Jordan is the son of former head coach Ted Nolan who served as the Sabres bench boss from 1995-1997 and again from 2013-2015.
