(An out-of-court) Jason Bailey update.

In a very random turn of events, Jason Bailey is back with the Ducks’ ECHL affiliate.

The right wing recently sued the Ducks, claiming he was the target of discrimination while playing for their then-ECHL affiliate Bakersfield Condors in the 2008-09 season. It’s not that Bailey couldn’t wait to get back – this season, the ECHL’s Elmira Jackals happen to be a shared affiliate of both the Ducks and Ottawa Senators, Bailey’s current NHL organization. So when Bailey was demoted from the AHL’s Binghamton Senators on Thursday, he just happened to be headed to Elmira.

The Jackals’ head coach, Malcolm Cameron, isn’t the same coach who had Bailey two seasons ago and was named in the suit against the Ducks (though like Marty Raymond, Cameron isn’t an employee of the Ducks).
