There’s a Nolan in Buffalo once again.
The Sabres have claimed forward Jordan Nolan off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings. Nolan is the son of two-time Sabres coach Ted Nolan.
“We’re happy to bring Jordan into the mix,” Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said Wednesday. “His size and speed, along with his experience with such a successful organization like the Kings, make him an asset to the organization.”
The 28-year-old Nolan played in 292 games for the Kings and was a member of their Stanley Cup-winning squads in 2012 and 2014.

The 6-foot-3, 219-pounder adds a physical element the Sabres lost with the trade of Marcus Foligno.
He has 20 goals, 42 points and 264 penalty minutes in his career. Nolan had four goals and eight points in 46 games last season.
Nolan is in the final season of a three-year contract that has a $950,000 cap hit.
