NHL suspends Jordan Nolan for Sucker Punching Jesse Joensuu

This should have been more than a one-game suspension. This is ridiculous. There's no sense to this crap. You can't just punch an unsuspecting player like this. It's a violation of the hockey code. A one-game suspension for this barbaric act is absolute joke. Unacceptable! I don't care what the Oilers defenseman Jesse Jensuu did, if you want to fight him, challenge him to a fight.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Los Angeles Kings forward Jordan Nolan has been suspended for one game for punching an unsuspecting opponent.

The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings' 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday. Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum.

Joensuu's arms were tied up by a linesman and the scrum was dissipating when Nolan threw his punch.

Nolan was assessed a double-minor penalty for roughing on the play. He will forfeit US$3,589.74 in salary.
