Ottawa Senators‘ undrafted 2nd year right wing Casey Bailey(37) skated his first big league contest since playing 6 games with Toronto Maple Leafs after finishing up an outstanding third year at Penn State University and subsequently signing a 2-year entry level deal.
In 6 games to wrap up the 2014/2015 season he would score his first NHL goal.
Reassigned to start his rookie campaign with affiliate Toronto Marlies, he scored 4 goals and 14 assists in 38 AHL match-ups but was involved in a major trade that sent him to Canada’s state capital for the remainder of 2015/2016.
Taking up where he left off in the minors, he would better his scoring output with 7 goals and another 14 assists for Binghamton Senators.
A late training camp cut, he rejoined the Baby Sens to start 2016/2017 with a brand new 1-year extension and looks to eclipse his first year scoring marks with already 9 tallies in 25 games.
The hot start has earned him a first recall.
In his debut he skated 13 shifts for 8:35 minutes of ice time with one shot on net and one takeaway.
The 25-year old looks to be just getting started.
