Alexandre Texier has found a new team for the 2022-23 season.
A day after the Blue Jackets announced that Texier, "per the advice and recommendation of the NHL/NHLPA Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program, will not join the club for the 2022-23 National Hockey League season," he signed a one-year contract with the ZSC Lions, a team in Switzerland's top-tier league.
Alexandre Texier is signing with the Zrcher Schlittschuh Club Lions for the 2022-23 season. ZSC Lions are located in Zurich, Switzerland, which is around a 4.5-hour, 261 mile drive from Texier's hometown of Grenoble, France, according to @googlemaps. #CBJ https://t.co/JDZ8iD2v4n— Coby Maeir (@CobyMaeir) August 25, 2022
The Lions play in Zurich, Switzerland, which is just a four-and-a-half-hour drive from Texier's hometown of Grenoble, France.
Texier will reunite with former Blue Jackets teammates Dean Kukan and Mikko Lehtonen on ZSC Lions.
