 UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Josh Bailey on a five-year, $16.5 million deal.
The contract announced Monday by the Islanders will keep the 23-year-old left wing signed through the 2017-18 season.

In five seasons, Bailey has 58 goals and 81 assists in 329 regular-season games.
