The National Hockey League announced today that Josh Bailey has been named the Second Star of the Week.
Bailey posted seven assists over three games to help the Islanders to a 2-1-0 record last week. Bailey opened the week with three assists against the Vegas Golden Knights helping him become the first Islander since 1997 to post 11 helpers in the month of October (R. Reichel). He followed up his career-month with back-to-back, two-assist nights in both Thursday's loss in Washington and Sunday's 6-4 win over Colorado.
Bailey's seven points were tied for the most in the NHL last week, joining Islanders' rookie Mathew Barzal (one goal, six assists).

Bailey is currently riding the NHL's longest active point streak (nine games) and assist streak (eight games), both good for his career-longs. Over his nine-game point streak that started back on Oct. 15 in Los Angeles, Bailey has totaled 16 points (2G, 14A), second most in the NHL over that time (Stamkos, 18).
Bailey currently ranks tied for second in the NHL in assists with 15.
This is Bailey's first time winning NHL Star of the Week honors.
