Bailey has been removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list ahead of Thursday's night's matchup with the Devils, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Bailey was just added to the protocol list Wednesday, but he was evidently able to provide a negative test ahead of Thursday night's contest. He'll slot into his usual spots on the Islanders' second line and second power-play unit against New Jersey.
Bailey has been added to the COVID-19 protocol, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
This explains why coach Barry Trotz was vague in describing why Bailey wasn't at practice Wednesday. If Bailey is unable to play Thursday versus the Devils, his next chance to get into the lineup will be in New Jersey on Sunday.
Bailey was added to the COVID-19 protocol list Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
It was announced earlier Wednesday that Bailey was questionable to play against the Devils on Thursday, and his placement could be the reason why. Bailey has gone pointless through the first three games of the season despite seeing a top-six role, so this comes at a tough time to be sidelined. Bailey will not be able to practice or travel with the team until he's cleared.
Bailey (undisclosed) is questionable to play Thursday versus the Devils, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz hasn't stated the exact nature of the injury. Bailey is off to a slow start this season, as he has yet to register a point in the first three games. He's been playing on a line with Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Anthony Beauvillier, but if his offensive woes continue, that could easily change.
If Bailey were to play 35 games this season he will become the fourth Islanders in history to play 900 games for the team, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Bailey will always have his detractors but with 30 assists this season that would also put him fifth all-time on the Islanders in that category. Bailey also had a team-high 20 assists in the playoffs last season. The bottom line is Bailey is far from a superstar and yes, every coach he has played for wants him to shoot the puck more, but the Islanders could do worse. Bailey will continue to line up on the second line with Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier and the Isles will hope this trio picks up from where they left off in the playoffs.

Bailey has been a consistent presence on the scoresheet with a goal and six helpers in six contests. He's only been held pointless once (Game 3 versus the Panthers) in that span. His second line with Anthony Beauvillier and Brock Nelson is pacing the team's offense -- any of them could be a good addition to DFS rosters given their current form.
