Josh Bailey Scouting Report

Just so this doesn't get lost in the shuffle. Seems as though this pick is the status quo of the Islanders the past couple of years.

Strengths: The solid two-way forward has been Windsor’s best player from the
beginning of the season. He has put up hoards of points with his strong
playmaking abilities, vision and anticipation. He skates well enough to get to
were he’s going and has a decent burst of acceleration. He is a tireless worker
and plays solid along the boards. He has been able to add a good grit factor this
season. Bailey is very defensively responsible with solid defensive positioning
and reads. He drives the net and cycles well down low. Offensively he has a
good shot but his strength is his ability to set-up teammates.

Weakness: Skating needs to improve if he is to play the same solid two-way
game at the next level. He also could use an added physical element as he
frequently backs off his aggressive play when pushed around. Improved strength
could go along way to improving both these areas.
