Josh Bailey News
Josh Bailey is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the Chicago Blackhawks placed him on unconditional waivers for the purposes of a buyout. The Blackhawks acquired Bailey from the New York Islanders on Thursday along with a second-round draft pick for future considerations. He had no future in New York and clearly wasn't seen as a fit in Chicago either. By getting rid of Bailey, the Islanders opened up $5 million of cap space. The veteran was a loyal servant for the Islanders, suiting up in 1,057 games for the team while posting 580 points, but his level of play dropped drastically last season and a divorce is probably the best for both parties.
New York Islanders winger Josh Bailey is nursing an upper-body injury. He was a late scratch for Tuesday's matchup against Philadelphia and it might now take a bit of time until we see Bailey back in action. The veteran winger hasn't had a good time this season, posting only four goals and three assists in 20 games. He has even spent some time in the press box due to his poor form. Bailey's struggles have helped rookie Simon Holmstrom to nail down a spot in the top six, although he is still playing pretty limited minutes and has tallied only one assist in four games.
New York islanders winger Josh Bailey will be back in action Saturday versus Dallas after sitting out two straight games as a healthy scratch. He's sat in the press box a total of three times this season, so things clearly aren't going well for the 33-year-old in 2022-23. Bailey has tallied three goals and two assists this season with 23 shots in 15 appearances. He's returning on the third line and is expected to also line up on the second power-play unit.
New York Islanders winger Josh Bailey will be back in the lineup Sunday against Florida after sitting out Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay as a healthy scratch. Bailey, who has been a solid scorer throughout his 14-year career, has struggled offensively so far this season and head coach Lane Lambert decided to give him a breather after Bailey had opened the campaign with a four-game point drought. It's not yet known who comes out of the lineup. With only six shots to his name as well, Bailey will be expected to do a lot better Sunday. He's averaged 0.56 points per game in his career and the team badly needs him to contribute offensively.
