Islanders agree to terms with Bailey
By QMI Agency
Josh Bailey agreed to a two-year deal with the New York Islanders just ahead of a hard deadline imposed by the team. Reports said it was worth $2.1 million. Bailey, 21, had 11 goals and 17 assists in 70 games last season.
Chosen ninth overall in 2008, Bailey had to sign by Friday morning or risk being forced to sit out the season.
