Talent Analysis

A speedy checker who leaves it all out on the ice, Jason Bailey has minimal offensive potential but is at his best when he is making room for his teammates by driving hard to the net and bowling over opposing players. By no means the largest player out there, Bailey's rambunctious style often lends itself to injury, but he has the willingness to play hurt and do whatever it takes to win, making him a leader both on and off the ice.
