BAILEY IS AN ISLANDER!

Josh Bailey
The Islanders have selected Joshua Bailey, a center from the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires, with the ninth overall selection.

Bailey ended the 2007-08 campaign with a bang, finishing with a nine-game point streak, registering 23 points (5-18-23) and helping the Spitfires finish third in the Western Conference. On the year, he led his team in scoring while ranking 10th overall in the league in points with 96 (29-67-96). His 67 assists ranked third overall in the OHL. In addition, he was an alternate captain with Windsor. He was selected to the 2008 OHL All-Star Classic and had two goals in the 2008 CHL Top Prospects Game, leading his team to an 8-4 victory.

Via two trades, the Islanders earned three extra draft pick. Earlier, the Islanders acquired the ninth overall pick and the 40th overall pick in 2008 from Nashville in exchange for the seventh overall pick. Prior to that, the Islanders acquired the seventh overall pick and the 60th overall pick in 2008 and a 2009 third-round pick or the 68th overall pick from 2008 and a 2009 second-round selection from Toronto in exchange for the 2008 fifth overall pick.


The Islanders will have until tomorrow to make their decision.

JOSHUA BAILEY

Team:
Windsor Spitfires (OHL)
Position: Center
Born: October 2, 1989 in Oshawa Ontario (Age 18)
Height: 6-0    
Weight: 188
Shoots: Left


2007-08 Regular Season: Games Played (67), Goals (29), Assists (67), Points (96), PIM (32)



Strengths: Bailey is the quarterback on the power-play, from down low, for the Windsor Spitfires and is going to continue to be that. He is a good play-making centerman with the ability to feed his linemates when he needs to and shoot the puck when the play requires that.

 
What They’re Saying:

"Josh is a really hard working up and down guy who has great puck skill and play-making ability. He has the ability to pass through any type of traffic and is an energy guy for Windsor. He's not a fighter but he's not one to be afraid of anyone or back down and he doesn't get knocked around. The biggest component of his game that needs improvement was his competitiveness, but he stepped it up down the stretch and really showed that next level."

 - NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards


"Joshua is a highly skilled player who can play on both ends of the ice as well as on the penalty kill and power-play units.  He has the unique ability to make players around him better."

-  Windsor Spitfires head coach Bob Boughner
