Islanders' Josh Bailey: Two helpers in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey notched two assists, one on the power play, during Friday's 5-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4 of their Stanley Cup Qualifier.

The veteran winger got the primary helper on Anthony Beauvillier's goal midway through the first period to open the scoring, then set up Brock Nelson for a wicked one-timer with the man advantage in the second. Bailey heads into the next round having recorded four assists in four games against Florida -- three of them on the power play.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (undisclosed) practiced with the Islanders on Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Bailey missed the final two periods of a 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks on Tuesday. Bailey has 14 goals, 29 assists and is a minus-12 in 68 games and seems likely to re-join the lineup soon.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (undisclosed) will not return to Tuesday's game against the Canucks.

Bailey managed an assist in 4:32 before he was injured Tuesday. He was ruled out for the game during the third period -- the Islanders did not provide any details regarding his injury. Expect further information on the winger's status ahead of Thursday's game in Calgary.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Bags empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored an empty-net goal on his only shot of the game in a 4-1 win over the Sharks on Sunday.

Bailey rounded out the scoring with 2:19 left in the third period for his first goal in six games. Despite registering only 80 shots in 61 games, Bailey is shooting a career-best 15.2 percent and has provided 13 goals and 39 points. He's a better real-life than fantasy player, but he's useful in deeper leagues.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Racks up trio of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey had three assists and three shots on goal in Monday's 5-3 win over Washington

Bailey was in on each of New York's first three goals as the Islanders built up a 5-1 lead. The 30-year-old has been on a nice run since mid-January, collecting three goals and eight assists over his last 10 games. Bailey will enter Tuesday's tilt against Philadelphia with 11 goals and 35 points in 54 games.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Tallies three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a power-play goal and added two helpers, including one with the man advantage, in a 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old capped off the defacto first half of 2019-20 with a season-high three points, including his first performance with two power-play points. Bailey also heads into the All-Star break with three goals and seven points in his last seven games. He's probably going to see a regression in his 16.7 shooting percentage at some point, but Bailey already has 11 goals and 30 points with a minus-10 rating in 49 games this season.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Andrew Gross of Newsday, Bailey (illness) participated in Tuesday's morning skate, which suggests he should be available for the evening's matchup with the Rangers.

Bailey exited Sunday's loss to Carolina in the first period due to an illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing Tuesday's tilt. The 30-year-old winger, who's picked up 10 goals and 27 points in 48 games this campaign, will skate on the Islanders' second line and first power-play unit against the Rangers.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Leaves game with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (illness) left Sunday's game against the Hurricanes and will not return.

Bailey saw just 4:42 of ice time in the contest before hitting the locker rooms early. Fortunately, because he's sick and not injured, there's a good chance he'll be ready to play in Tuesday's road game against the Rangers. An update on his availability for that game will likely be made prior to the contest.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Nets helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey had an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins on Saturday.

The assist was the first point for Bailey in seven games. To date, Bailey has had a disappointing season with only eight goals and 16 assists in 43 games, not to mention a rating of minus-9. This is not what the Islanders had in mind when they re-signed Bailey to a six-year, $30 million contract in February 2018. Currently, Bailey is on pace to have his worst season since the 2015-16 campaign when he only had 12 goals and 20 assists in 81 games.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Produces helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey had an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

Bailey found new linemate Ross Johnston for the goal at 5:50 of the first period. The helper snapped a five-game point drought for Bailey. The 30-year-old now has 23 points, 47 shots and a minus-4 rating through 36 contests this season.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Moved to center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey played center with Andrew Ladd and Michael Dal Colle flanking him during the Islanders 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Monday.

Coach Barry Trotz has been changing up his lines frequently of late and there is no reason to believe that this trio will stick together for any length of time. The Islanders lack depth at center and Trotz is just trying to find a combination that works. Bailey is having a disappointing season with eight goals, 14 assists, and a rating of minus-3 in 35 games. More will be expected of Bailey along with most of the forwards for the Islanders after the holiday break.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Two-point effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a short-handed goal and added a power-play assist in Monday's 5-1 win over the Lightning.

His second-period tally on a nearly uncontested breakaway from his own blue line gave the Isles a 2-1 lead and held up as the game-winner. The marker ended a nine-game goal drought for Bailey, although he did have five assists in his prior five games, and on the year the 30-year-old has eight goals and 21 points in 29 contests.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Slings assist Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey produced an assist and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

Bailey connected on a long pass to Anthony Beauvillier as the latter exited the penalty box, resulting in the Islanders' second goal. Bailey has assists in consecutive outings after a four-game dry spell. For the year, the winger has produced 16 points and 26 shots on goal through 25 contests.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Moved to scoring line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was moved to the top line during practice Tuesday with Mathew Barzal and Anders Lee, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Coach Barry Trotz switched up several lines as he wasn't happy with the team's performance during their 3-0 loss to Anaheim on Monday. Bailey has bounced around the top three lines all season and his stay with Barzal and Lee may last a period, a game, a week, there really is no way to tell as Trotz does like to change up his lines when he feels things aren't going his way. On the season Bailey has seven goals and 14 points in 22 games. Bailey is on pace to eclipse the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career but is also on pace to have his least total points in four seasons. Like many Islanders, scoring has been tough to come by this year.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Bailey (rest) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game in Philadelphia, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Bailey took a partial maintenance day Thursday, but he was never in danger of missing Saturday's contest. The veteran forward, who's notched six goals and 13 points in 17 games this campaign, will slot into his usual role skating on the Islanders' third line and second power-play unit against the Flyers.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Leaves practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (soreness) left practice about halfway through Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Coach Barry Trotz stated that Bailey was just banged up and sore after playing the Maple Leafs on Wednesday and he should be in the lineup Saturday in Philadelphia. The return of several injured Islanders has seen Bailey moved back to the second line with Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier, but Trotz mentioned Wednesday that one thing he likes about Bailey is the ability to use him on different lines and in different positions.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Pots game-winner, assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

Bailey was the toe on a beautiful tic-tac-toe sequence, blasting a one-timer past Andrei Vasilevskiy from the right faceoff circle with just over seven minutes left in the third period. The goal, Bailey's fifth of the year, put the Isles up 3-1 and held up as the winning score. He also assisted on Derick Brassard's empty-netter in the final minute. The 30-year-old is off to a good start in 2019-20 with five goals and 11 points through 12 games.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Leads team in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 victory over the Coyotes.

Bailey now has eight points (four goals, four assists) in nine games so far. And go figure -- that leads the Isles in scoring. Bailey is available in a lot of leagues, so check your wire. You may get lucky.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Road warrior in Winnipeg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey finished with two points, including a power-play assist, in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Jets.

Bailey drew the secondary assist on Mathew Barzal's power-play goal at the 7:41 mark of the second period, then followed it up by scoring an empty-net goal with 27 seconds left in the game. This was the second time this season Bailey has finished with two points, and the Isles' winger now has six points on the year, in seven contests.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Provides goal in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Panthers.

Bailey potted his second goal of the season late in the second period, when he finished off an odd-man rush to put the Islanders up 2-1. After being held off the scoresheet in the season opener, Bailey has since picked up at least one point in three of his last four, with two goals and two assists in that stretch. He'll look to keep things going Monday against the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis.
