Islanders F Josh Bailey was named the NHL's second star of th month of December, the league announced Tuesday.
Bailey tallied seven goals and 15 assists for a total 22 points during the Islanders' 15 games in December. He has at least one point in 13 of his last 15 games. He also had seven mutli-point games, which included his first career hat trick.
The 28-year-old is currently tied for first in the league with 38 assists, and is second overall with 50 points on the season. He had a career-high in points last season with 56, but he is more than likely to surpass that total this year.
