NHL free agency: Islanders agree to five-year deal with Josh Bailey
Bailey scored 11 goals and added eight assists in 38 games last season. He didn't find the net in his first trip to the playoffs, but he did pick up three assists in six games.
"Josh has become an important member of the young core of the players we have in our dressing room," Islanders general manager Garth Snow said. "We’re excited to come to terms with him on a deal that will ensure he is a member of this team as we solidify ourselves as consistent playoff contenders."
