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.

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.
