    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Opens second half strong

    Bailey notched a goal -- his first since Dec. 21 -- and an assist Thursday in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals. He was a driving force behind the Isles' offense in this one, but it wasn't quite enough. Bailey's sprung out of the All-Star break with three points in two games -- quite the change of pace from the three points he'd collected in his previous dozen contests. The 26-year-old's ice time has fallen off recently, dropping into the mid-13-minute range from the approximately 16 minutes per game he was averaging for much of the season, but it's possible that Bailey could regain top-six ice time at the expense of Nikolay Kulemin if he can put a little hot streak together.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Has gone 10 games without a goal

    Bailey hasn't scored and goal and only has three assists in his last 10 games. Bailey only has seven goals and 20 points on the season. He's not the only Islander struggling to light the lamp but the former first round pick may find himself buried on the third line for most of the rest of his career if he doesn't start to show some offensive prowess.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Two goals in his last 14 games

    Bailey has only scored twice in his last 14 games but is currently still playing on the top line with John Tavares. This is one of the more curious moves by coach Jack Capuano. Bailey has never been much of a goal scorer (16 being his career high) but still remains on the top line. Why Capuano wouldn't give a player such as Ryan Strome or Brock Nelson a bump up is questionable to say the least.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Grabs assist in rout of Leafs on Tuesday

    Bailey tallied his 11th assist of the year as the Islanders doubled up the Maple Leafs 6-3 on Tuesday. That's 18 points in 36 games for Bailey, who continues to provide value to the Islanders and deeper fantasy leagues with his occasional secondary production. Bailey is a versatile forward, frequently bouncing around the Isles' top-nine forward corps. He's inconsistent and doesn't shoot the puck a ton (54 SOG this year), but Bailey put up 41 and 38 points over the last two seasons and is on pace for 41 again this year. If you can handle the dry spells, the 26-year-old makes for an adequate fantasy option -- especially when he gets a shot to skate with superstar John Tavares on the top line and power play, where he's currently slotted.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Heating up again

    Bailey only scored twice in November but they were in two of the last three games. Baily has never been the player the Islanders thought he would be when they drafted him in the first round. He is on pace for a typical season, 15-18 goals and about 40 points.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Contributes two assists in win

    Bailey collected a pair of helpers in Friday's win over the Ducks. A much-needed offensive outburst from Bailey, who had gone seven straight games without registering a point. The 26-year-old is now up to three goals and eight points in 17 games on the season. While he's currently skating on the second line, Bailey has never surpassed 16 goals in his career, so don't expect monstrous totals. After setting a career high with 41 points in 2014-15, Bailey has established himself as a solid offensive contributed who can produce points at a decent rate.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Benched on Sunday

    Bailey was in the press box for Sunday's loss to Boston, reports Newsday. Coach Jack Capuano blames Bailey for a goal last Sunday versus Buffalo where he was a little slow getting back to help out in his own zone. The Islanders have been struggling of late and with the demotion of Ryan Strome to the AHL and the benching of Bailey, Capuano is sending a message to the team to pick up their play or have a similar fate.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Expected to play on top line

    Bailey is expected to play on the top line with John Tavares, reports Newsday. Bailey has had a hot start to the season with three goals and six points in nine games. Coach Jack Capuano is a tinkerer, constantly changing his lines but one might ask here, if it isn't broken, why fix it? Bailey was giving the Isles good secondary scoring playing with Kyle Okposo on the second line and it wasn't like Tavares was struggling. Either way it's unlikely that Capuano will keep this line together long, sooner or later he will feel the itch to make yet another change.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Opens goal account for 2015-16 season

    Bailey opened his goal account for the season with an empty-netter in Monday's 4-2 win over the Jets. Bailey is a highly-skilled forward, but has yet to reach the potential the Islanders saw when they took him with the ninth overall pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. That being said, he has averaged around two power play minutes per game his entire career, including this season, and is known to be a streaky player.
