NHL.com - Justin Bailey thrilled to land with hometown Sabres:
Quote:
"Justin's on the upward swing," Sabres director of amateur scouting Kevin Devine told NHL.com. "We had Connor Hurley rated further ahead of him, but to get Justin where we got him was a real nice surprise for us. He's a big guy who hasn't filled out his frame yet, and very athletic. He's just kind of getting it now after his first year in Kitchener. That's a heck of a league he played in, and to score 17 goals is a good accomplishment. His potential is unlimited."

"I feel I'm still learning, but I'll keep developing," Bailey said. "My dad played at 240 pounds and was 6-foot-4. I'd like to stay at 190 pounds. I need to win a majority of those battles along the boards and not get pushed around. I don't want to put on too much weight, but the sky's the limit. Having an opportunity to help the Buffalo Sabres is going to be special, and I really like the way they are rebuilding the team."
However, I do think he's going to have to play heavier than 190 though.
