Who could've guessed that a French prospect would make so much noise?

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Alexandre Texier hasn't just made noise. He is the noise. He has zero fear, and is currently setting records all over the place. His most recent claim? The youngest ever Blue Jackets player to score goal in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Texier actually scored two goals on the evening, so you can add youngest multi-goal scorer to the resume as well.
In just under 14 minutes of ice time, Texier scored two goals on four shots on goal and just under a minute of ice time on the power play.
Add all of that to the fact that Columbus is undefeated with Texier in the lineup (6-0-0). They may have found their good luck charm as well as a goal scorer.
While the Texier coming out party has started, the potential shown from the young kid should make fans and front-office types drool. Each night, a new wrinkle to his game seems to unfold. The development is happening on the biggest stage, which is even more exciting.
