One of Faksa's linemates tonight is 2013 draft eligible Justin Bailey. He's got nice size at 6'3", and he's not exactly thin as a rail being listed at 183 lbs. as a 17 year old. He's obviously got some filling out to do.

....

The Williamsville, N.Y., native offers huge potential by virtue of his quickness and a body that will probably allow him to put on bulk without sacrificing mobility.
Quote:
"He's a big guy, uses his size well," Edwards, who saw Bailey during the summer at a USA Hockey camp in Rochester, N.Y., told NHL.com. "He's got a real good shot and he's able to get it off coming in off the wing. For a guy that really never played at much of a [high] caliber before, he looked like he had it all together. He looked like he had an offensive touch to him. He used his size well. I left Rochester thinking he might be a top forward with a really good skill set. That's what I still think he's going to be."
