Confirmed: Jordan Nolan injured in a fight last night

For all the concern about members of the LA Kings possibly suffering injuries while playing over in Europe, the first NHL lockout to befall the reigning Stanley Cup Champions actually took place in Rhode Island last night.

Jordan Nolan – our guest on the MayorsManor show earlier this week – was injured in a fight with Bobby Robins of the Providence Bruins. While it’s officially being listed as an ‘upper body’ injury, Manchester coach Mark Morris told local reporters it was  a broken finger.  The Monarchs went on to win the game 3-1.   However, Nolan won’t suit up for tonight’s game vs. the Albany Devils and he’s expected to be out a few weeks.

On a more positive note from that game, Andrei Loktionov scored one of the nicer looking shorthanded goals you’ll ever see. Click here to check it out.

  1. Ouch poor guy. I’m really bummed to see all the guys split up playing elsewhere. I guess I should be happy they are at least playing but injuries and/or Europe contracts will affect who can play when and if the NHL season starts.

  2. Nolan was looking good too. Sucks. He is a stud in the AHL.

  3. Nolan, King, etc. should be able to fight AHL guys with their SC rings on.
