Josh Bailey's back and he's here to stay

Bailey was recalled from AHL Bridgeport today and he'll play tonight for the Islanders. As I failed to point out in my post about his possible recall yesterday, he's not going back to the minors for a simple reason:

Tonight will be Bailey's 160th NHL game, which is the minimum number needed for a player to require waivers to be sent down. So now that he'll reach it, he's an Islander for good.

More after the Isles' AM skate.
