The 19-year-old has had an impressive OHL season thus far.
The Sabres announced during Sunday night's game that they have signed forward Justin Bailey to a three-year entry-level deal. Bailey, a Buffalo native, was taken by the Sabres in the second round of the 2013 draft.
Proud to be from Buffalo and one step closer to achieving my dream! Thanks to my family, friends, teammates, and all who have supported me!— Justin Bailey (@JustinBailey95) November 2, 2014
Bailey was off to a hot start with Kitchener of the OHL this season, scoring eight goals and eight assists in 13 games. This is Bailey's third year with the Rangers. He had a career year last season, scoring 24 goals and 19 assists in 54 games.
