RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Justin Bailey.
The 19-year-old power forward will be one of the Kitchener Rangers’ key players for the 2014-15 season. The kid from nearby Williamsville, N.Y. finished the OHL season with 25 goals, an eight-goal improvement from last year, to tie for the team lead. The second-round pick from 2013 will remain in the OHL for the foreseeable future before turning pro. Bailey has not been signed by the Sabres yet but may do at the conclusion of the season.
Bailey is a rangy forward with excellent foot speed, and the Sabres saw enough potential in him to select him in the 2nd round, 58th overall in June’s NHL Draft. He put up 36 points in 57 games with Kitchener of the OHL last season, and is slated to return to junior hockey for at least another season. There’s power-forward upside here, but it will be several seasons before he hits the fantasy radar.
