Vancouver reassigned Bailey to AHL Utica on Tuesday. The Canucks needed to send Bailey to the minors in order to make room for defensemen Guillaume Brisebois and Jalen Chatfield on their roster. The 24-year-old winger will likely continue to bounce between leagues down the stretch, but he won't be a viable fantasy option.
The Canucks recalled Bailey from AHL Utica on an emergency basis Sunday. Bailey will provide some forward depth ahead of Sunday's road clash with Columbus. The 24-year-old has played two games at the NHL level, going pointless while averaging just 5:20 of ice time over that span.
The Canucks have reassigned Bailey to AHL Utica. Bailey played two games during his stint with the Canucks, picking up four hits and one shot on goal. He only played a combined 10:39 of ice time, but he brought energy to the ice in his limited minutes. He's the odd man out after the Canucks acquired Tyler Toffoli. Bailey could get called up again should there be more injuries in Vancouver.
Bailey will make his Canucks debut during Monday's match against Nashville. Bailey has been thriving in AHL Utica, where he's racked up 40 points through 45 contests. With Brock Boeser (upper body) on injured reserve, Bailey has an opportunity to carry his momentum to the NHL level.
The Canucks promoted Bailey from AHL Utica on Thursday. Vancouver placed Tyler Motte (upper body) on injured reserve in a corresponding move, so Bailey will round out the team's depth up front for the foreseeable future. The 24-year-old has racked up 24 goals and 40 points in 45 games with Utica this season.
