Canucks' Justin Bailey: Signs with Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canucks on Thursday.

Bailey spent most of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, notching 15 goals and 28 points in 54 games, but he also made 11 appearances with the Flyers, tallying one assist over that span. He'll likely stick with the Canucks' AHL affiliate for most of the upcoming season, so he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

Justin Bailey: Let go by Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers will not send Bailey a qualifying offer prior to Tuesday's deadline, which means he'll become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Bailey only managed to tally one assist in 11 appearances with Philadelphia this campaign, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. He'll hope to get another opportunity with a new organization in 2019-20, but he may need to settle for a two-day deal in order to make it happen.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Ends season with one point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey posted one point -- an assist -- in 11 games with the Flyers during 2018-19.

He saw more NHL action after the trade to Philadelphia in January, but that's not saying much considering Bailey didn't play a game for Buffalo this season. In 11 games, Bailey barely played, averaging 5:44 of ice time. In addition to only one point, he had just five shots on net.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Has one point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey has an assist, two PIM and an even rating in three games since getting recalled from the minors on March 21.

The 23-year-old was a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, but Bailey has taken advantage of the minimal ice time he's received since returning to the NHL. The assist he posted last Thursday was his first point of the season, and two of his four shots on net in 2018-19 have come within the last week. He has five goals and nine points in 62 career NHL games.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Flipped back to Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was recalled from the minors Thursday and will suit up against Chicago, John Boruk of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Bailey will take Michael Raffl's (undisclosed) spot in the lineup. In his seven appearances this season, the 23-year-old Bailey averaged a meager 5:45 of ice time and managed a mere two shots, nine hits and three blocks. The Buffalo native is set to slot into a bottom-six role, which limits his fantasy value.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday,

The Flyers only have 12 forwards on the active roster with Bailey heading back to the minors, so this move is likely due to the Flyers following rules concerning inactive players more than anything else. However, the depth winger could always get called back up ahead of Thursday's game against the Blackhawks.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Continues bouncing between leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was promoted from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Bailey's frequent moves between the AHL and NHL are due to emergency recall rules that mandate a player be sent back down if he doesn't suit up while with the team. At this point, it might be worth it for the Flyers to just use one of their four permanent recalls in order to save the winger from living out of his suitcase. Even if Philippe Myers (illness) doesn't play against the Habs on Tuesday, Bailey is unlikely to see the ice and will just be there in case somebody gets hurt in warmups.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Relegated to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was returned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.

The Flyers will welcome Jakub Voracek back from suspension for Friday night's road game against the Maple Leafs, with Bailey being the odd man out. The 23-year-old has compiled six goals and two helpers through 16 games with the Phantoms this season.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was called up from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

Bailey figures to immediately jump into the lineup versus the Capitals on Thursday after the league upheld the two-game ban for Jakub Voracek. In his previous stints in the NHL this season, the 23-year-old Bailey recorded just two shots, seven hits and two blocks in six games, in which he averaged a meager 5:41 of ice time. The youngster will likely see a similar role in Thursday's tilt.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Headed back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers sent Bailey to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Bailey saw the ice for just 6:12 Wednesday against the Capitals and hasn't logged more than 10 minutes of ice time in a game this season, so his demotion shouldn't impact much from a fantasy standpoint. He's fared a little better at the AHL level, notching eight points over 13 games.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Returns from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers recalled Bailey from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Adam Kimelman of reports.

The Flyers have two forwards on the roster dealing with injuries in Jakub Voracek (lower body) and Nolan Patrick (laceration), so Bailey should provide some extra insurance in advance of Wednesday's game against the Capitals. If he dresses for that contest, Bailey would likely be limited to a bottom-six role.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Shipped back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers demoted Bailey to AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

With trade deadline acquisition Ryan Hartman ready to roll, Bailey, who slotted into the lineup for the last three games, will retake his place at Lehigh Valley, where the 23-year-old winger owns seven points in 10 games. While it's unlikely Bailey will ever turn into a fantasy juggernaut at the top level, there's still a chance he could find playing time in the future if the Flyers can unlock the talent that made him a second-round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Searching for first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey, who has played three games with his new team, is still looking for his first point with the Flyers.

The 23-year-old came over in a trade from the Sabres on Jan. 17. He began his stint in the Flyers organization in the minors, but the team recalled him on Feb. 10, and he's played in the last three games. Bailey has five goals and eight points in 55 career NHL games since debuting in 2015-16.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Lifted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers recalled Bailey from AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Bailey was acquired from the Sabres via trade Jan. 17 and has spent 10 games with the Flyers' minor-league affiliate, scoring five goals and adding two assists. He'll serve as depth with the Flyers, and his first chance to enter the lineup will be Monday versus the Penguins.

Flyers' Justin Bailey: Dealt to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres traded Bailey to the Flyers in exchange for Taylor Leier on Thursday.

Bailey has yet to appear in an NHL contest this season and will likely spend the rest of the campaign with Philadelphia's AHL affiliate, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to take note of this deal.

Sabres' Justin Bailey: Rough start to year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey has struggled in his return to Rochester, Bill Hoppe of the Buffalo News reports.

Bailey failed to crack the Sabres' opening night roster, and found himself on waivers. He was given some encouragement from former Sabre Daniel Briere, noting that Briere went through a similar process himself. Bailey still had trouble putting the puck in the net though. He scored a pair in Wednesday's win over Cleveland, but those are his only tallies in the dozen games he's played this campaign. He'll need to get more offense going before he's called back up by the Sabres.

Sabres' Justin Bailey: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was waived by the Sabres on Saturday, CapFriendly reports.

Bailey was a late cut from training camp, which is understandable given his lofty draft profile -- he was Buffalo's second-round (52nd overall) draft pick in 2013 -- and the winger being relatively close to earning a significant role at the top level. There's always a chance another team could claim him, but if not, he'll head to AHL Rochester.

Sabres' Justin Bailey: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (shoulder) is expected to play in Tuesday's preseason home game versus the Penguins.

Bailey is still looking to evolve into a full-timer in the NHL. Last season, he registered three goals and one assist over 12 games at the top level.

Sabres' Justin Bailey: Earns one-year deal with Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (shoulder) inked a one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000 with Buffalo on Sunday.

Bailey has 52 career NHL games under his belt, including four point in 12 games with Buffalo last season. The 23-year-old winger was injured in AHL Rochester's final playoff game last season but should be ready to go for training camp. Buffalo was incredibly active this offseason and acquired some forward depth, so Bailey will need to battle for a spot on the NHL roster.

Sabres' Justin Bailey: Issued qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey (shoulder) was tendered a qualifying offer from the Sabres on Monday.

Bailey saw action in just 12 games for the Sabres during the 2017-18 campaign, posting three goals and one assist. While those numbers aren't anything overly impressive, it was good enough to earn a qualifying offer, which should keep Bailey in the same sweater for a third straight year. The 22-year-old suffered a separated shoulder in the team's playoff finale, but he should be back to full strength well ahead of the upcoming season.
