Citing personal issues, Texier takes break from Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Columbus Blue Jackets center Alexandre Texier will not join the team for the upcoming season because of unspecified personal problems.

The Blue Jackets said in a release Wednesday that the 22-year-old native of Saint-Martin-d'Heres, France, would not be with the team for the 2022-23 season, "per the advice and recommendation of the NHL/NHLPA Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program."

"During the past year, I have experienced some personal issues and challenges and I feel I need to be close to my family at this time," the player said in a statement. "This is a hard decision, but it is the best one for me right now."
