Playing career[edit | edit source]
Bailey was selected 9th overall by the New York Islanders in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. The Islanders' GM Garth Snow traded down twice in the draft (from 5th to 7th, 7th to 9th) to acquire Bailey, a move that surprised many.
On October 2, 2008, on his 19th birthday, the Islanders signed Bailey to a 3-year entry level contract. Shortly after on October 7, 2008, the Islanders announced that Bailey would begin the 2008-2009 season in the NHL; however, his NHL debut was delayed by an injury sustained during a preseason game.
On November 13, 2008, in his second NHL game, Bailey notched his first point - an assist on a powerplay goal by former first round pick Kyle Okposo. Okposo retrieved the puck from the referees so Bailey could commemorate the event.
