NEW YORK (AP) Josh Bailey agreed to a six-year, $30 million deal Friday to stay with the New York Islanders instead of testing free agency this summer.

The 28-year-old forward, selected to his first All-Star appearance last month, has 15 goals and 47 assists this season - already setting career highs for assists and points (62). Bailey is tied for seventh in the league in assists and third on the Islanders in points, behind rookie Mathew Barzal (65) and captain John Tavares (64).

"Josh has become one of the core members of the New York Islanders," general Manager Garth Snow said in a statement. "To come into the past few seasons and see Josh set new career highs each year, has been impressive and we're excited to see him continue to do that with the organization as we move forward."
