Bailey played junior A hockey for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the BCHL from 2009–2012 before going to play college hockey with the Penn State Nittany Lions. Having not been selected in any NHL Entry Drafts, Bailey signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 21, 2015. He became the first Penn State player to sign an NHL contract, as well as the first to play in the NHL. Bailey was coming off a sensational 2014–15 junior season in which he finished fourth in scoring within the Big Ten Conference when he signed with the Leafs. Fourteen other NHL teams had shown interest in Bailey and Bailey had previously attended training camps with the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames.
Prior to signing, Bailey was negotiating an entry-level deal with the Buffalo Sabres, however, the Sabres were unwilling to meet Bailey's demands of playing in the final few games of the team's season, prompting the signing with Toronto. Bailey scored his first NHL goal in the last game of his inaugural season, on April 11, 2015, against Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens. During his first full professional season in 2015–16, Bailey was assigned to the Leafs' AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, and produced 18 points in 38 contests before he was included alongside Dion Phaneuf in a nine-player trade to the Ottawa Senators organization on February 9, 2016. Bailey finished the season with the Senators' AHL affiliate Binghamton Senators.
Bailey was assigned to Binghamton to start the 2016–17 season. He was called up to Ottawa in December and made his Ottawa debut on December 17 against the New Jersey Devils.
Bailey was born in Anchorage, Alaska to parents Glen and Dawn Bailey. He has one brother (Kyle Bailey) and a sister (Jessica Bailey). Bailey is currently working on earning a university degree in economics.
