News: Playing in his 41st game of the season, Nolan finally picked up his first assist of the year Tuesday in a win over the Oilers.
Impact: Nolan had scored four goals in his first 40 games, but effective playmaking had eluded him. Don't expect much more offense from the gritty winger, whose career high is 10 points; he offers modest utility in the PIM and hits categories, and that's about it.

News: The Kings signed Nolan to a three-year contract extension on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Per the report, the average annual value of Nolan's contract is $950,000. In 36 games this season, the rugged Nolan has notched four goals and recorded 27 PIM while working mostly on the Kings' fourth line.

News: Nolan potted his second goal of the season and piled up five hits in Saturday's loss to the Bruins.
Impact: Nolan has sat out roughly half the Kings' games this season, entering the lineup typically when another forward or two is nursing an injury. With Tanner Pearson (leg) likely out for the season, Nolan should enjoy more regular action the rest of the way, but he's not likely to offer much in the way of fantasy production while playing light minutes on the checking line.
