Future Watch: Alexandre Texier Rookie Hockey Cards, Blue JacketsFuture Watch: Alexandre Texier Rookie Hockey Cards, Blue JacketsAlexandre Texier was born in Grenoble, France. He’s not the first to come from France but he could end up being one of the best. He once had a 70-point season playing in Grenoble. That season included 40 goals. He accomplished all of that in just 17 games.

While playing for KalPa in Finland for a couple of seasons, in Liiga, he had 63 points in 108 games. In his second season there he led his team with 14 goals and 41 points in 2018-19. He was playing against men and that helped him develop. In that same year, he did get a cup of coffee with the Columbus Blue Jackets. He played in two games and got one goal. He got in eight postseason games in the NHL and got three points, two of them were goals. He also got in seven regular-season games in the AHL with the Cleveland Monsters and had seven points in seven games. He capped off that globetrotting year playing for France in the World Championships, he had three points in seven games.

He turned 20 just before the NHL season started in 2019-20. At 6-1, 194, he’s a versatile player so all he had to do was make the team and he did.

Collectors can find his Young Guns rookie card in 2019-20 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey. He has cards in Parkhurst, O-Pee-Chee and Artifacts as well. He is a sleeper!

Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:

In the first 35 games of the new season, this prospect scored six goals and added seven helpers. In December, the rookie had a multi-goal game against the Ottawa Senators. His season keeps getting better and better. He’s probably not in the Calder running just yet but you never know what can happen down the road.
