The New York Islanders have finalized a deal with Josh Bailey, signing the veteran to a 6-year contract extension on Friday, according to a team announcement.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that the new deal is worth $30 million, although financial terms have not officially been disclosed.
“Josh has become one of the core members of the New York Islanders,” said Islanders president and general manager Garth Snow. “He has developed within our system for several years and it’s exciting to see him mature into the player we always had confidence he would become.
“To come into the past few seasons and see Josh set new career highs each year has been impressive and we’re excited to see him continue to do that with the organization as we move forward.”
Bailey has notched 15 goals and 47 assists for 62 points through 58 games for New York this season.
