Josh Bailey C NYI 4 Days

Bailey notched an assist and attempted four shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

Bailey has been thriving since January, which has unsurprisingly coincided with his placement on the Isles' top line next to John Tavares. The 25-year-old winger has put up six goals and 12 assists over his last 22 games, and there's no reason to suspect those totals to dip until Kyle Okposo (eye) is ready to reclaim his top-line gig.

Bailey scored two goals and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over Columbus.He's on a three-game, five-point scoring streak that includes three goals. He's also plus-six in that span. He's fitting in just fine on that top line and is worth rolling as long as he stays in that situation.

Bailey notched an assist and two shot attempts in Tuesday's loss to the Panthers.

Bailey continues to hold down a top-line role with John Tavares, though Kyle Opkoso (eye) is no longer joining them on the trio. Anders Lee has since stepped in to fill the void, and if his performance Tuesday (two goals) was any indication, the top line should be just fine. Bailey had a hand in Lee's first goal, snapping a minor two-game point drought for the latter. Dating back to Jan. 9, Bailey has produced two goals and eight assists in 10 games, making him a useful asset to pursue in mid-sized formats.

Bailey assisted on three of Kyle Okposo's four goals in Friday's win over the Penguins.

That's five points in four games for Bailey, who now has seven goals and 18 points in 32 games on the season, to go with a plus-8 rating. Skating on the top line, the 25-year-old hasn't gone two straight games without a point since early December. Despite missing time with injury, Bailey is still on pace for a career-high 40 points. He's a solid play in some deeper leagues.

Bailey picked up an assist in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.

Bailey's assist came on a goal by Kyle Okposo, with whom the forward saw top-line time Saturday. The favorable arrangement next to Okposo and John Tavares could continue for as long as Mikhail Grabovski remains unavailable with a lower-body injury.

Bailey (upper body) will return to the lineup Friday against the Devils.

Bailey was held out Tuesday night against Vancouver due to the injury, but it apparently wasn't anything overly serious, given his quick return. He'll swap in for Cal Clutterbuck, who appeared to suffer an upper-body injury of his own in Tuesday's contest.

Bailey (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Canucks.

Coach Jack Capuano declined to provide a reason for keeping Bailey out of Tuesday's lineup, but it's likely that he's dealing with some sort of injury, as he wasn't even present at the team's morning skate. Michael Grabner (lower body) will come off IR to fill out the Isles' forward ranks.

Bailey picked up two assists in Saturday's shootout defeat to the Sabres.

Bailey saw only 13:14 of action Saturday, but with most of it coming on the top line with Kyle Okposo and John Tavares, he was able to make good use of it. The Islanders have tried out a number of players at the left wing spot on the top line this season, but coach Jack Capuano has yet to permanently settle on a player. Bailey's performance Saturday would seemingly aid his chances at getting a longer look in the role.
