Senators sign Bailey to PTO

The Ottawa Senators signed forward Josh Bailey to a professional tryout Thursday.

Bailey, 33, tallied eight goals and 25 points in 64 contests last season with the New York Islanders and averaged a career-low 15:08 minutes of ice time. He was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in June and subsequently bought out of the final year of his contract. Bailey was set to cost $5 million against the cap prior to his buyout.

The 15-year veteran has played his entire career with the Islanders since the team drafted him in 2008. He amassed 184 goals and 580 points in 1,057 contests on Long Island.

Bailey’s best season came in 2017-18 when he scored 18 goals and 71 points in 76 games. He signed a six-year, $30-million contract after his career campaign.

The Senators have $895,953 of cap space should the team opt to sign Bailey, according to CapFriendly.
