Distraction Of The Day: Casey Bailey’s Grandma Is Proud of Him

Former Penn State right-winger Casey Bailey made the jump to the NHL three weeks ago, and before last night, had yet to make an impact on the scoresheet for his struggling Toronto Maple Leafs. In his first five games, the offensively dynamic forward was held to no points and a mere five shots on goal — a drastic difference from his 22 goals and 211 shots in 37 games this past season at Penn State.

In his sixth game, and the Leafs’ last game of the season, he played like the Casey Bailey that Hockey Valley has learned to love, tallying four more shots and his first career goal, a deflection past possible-MVP Carey Price.

Although he’s now a professional hockey player with an NHL goal under his belt, when the Maple Leafs praised him on their Facebook page, Grandma Judy Bailey expressed her pride and apologized for not being able to make it to the game.


Too cute. Let’s hope more goals are on the way for Bailey next season, and that his grandma can make the trip to witness them in person.
