Former UAA center Bailey making pro debut tonight (UPDATED)

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

Former UAA center Matt Bailey, who signed a two-year deal with the NHL's Anaheim Ducks earlier this week, is in the lineup for AHL Norfolk, Anaheim's affiliate, tonight as the Admirals entertain the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. (UPDATE: Norfolk lost 2-1. AHL online summaries don't tell you much. Bailey was -1 with zero shots or penalty minutes).

Bailey, who led UAA in scoring this season with 20-18--38 totals in 38 games as a senior, is playing for Norfolk on an amateur tryout agreement (ATO). His deal with Anaheim kicks in next season.
