The New York Islanders have locked up Josh Bailey to a long-term deal.

The team announced Friday that they have signed the 28-year old forward to a six-year contract extension worth $30 million.

“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.” said Islanders general manager Garth Snow.

Bailey, who was selected 9th overall in the 2008 NHL Draft, is in his tenth season with the organization. He has posted 15 goals, 47 assists and a minus-8 rating in 58 games this season.
