Texier (lower body) signed a two-year, $3.05 million contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Texier drew into 49 games with Columbus last season, posting 15 points and 75 shots over that span. The 21-year-old forward will likely produce at a similar pace in 2021-22, so he won't be a viable option in most fantasy formats.
Texier (lower body) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's season finale against Detroit.
Texier will end up missing the Blue Jackets' last three games this season. He finishes the campaign with four goals and a career-high 15 points in 49 games, but Texier was more effective last season, with six goals and 13 points in just 36 appearances. The 21-year-old forward also saw his rating plummet from plus-3 last season to minus-13 this year as the Blue Jackets went from playoff contenders to bottom-feeders.
Texier is dealing with a lower-body injury and will not play Wednesday against Nashville.
Texier has only missed four games all season, but with just two games left in the Blue Jackets' campaign after Wednesday, it seems likely that Texier may not suit up against until 2021-22.

Texier provided an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.
Texier did some hard work to retrieve the puck and set up David Savard's tally in the final minute of the second period. The 21-year-old Texier has two assists in three games since he returned to the lineup. He's provided modest depth scoring in 2020-21 with 11 points, 45 shots, 33 hits and a minus-3 rating through 33 appearances.

Texier was activated from COVID-19 protocol and assigned to the taxi squad Sunday.
Texier missed the last two games while in the league's COVID-19 protocol. His move to the taxi squad could be for salary-cap purposes, as his next chance to play is Monday's game versus the Hurricanes. The 21-year-old has posted four goals and five assists through 30 games.

Texier missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Texier was sent to the taxi squad Sunday, likely as a paper move, but is back to the active roster already. He's racked up five points in six games and should take his usual spot in the lineup for Tuesday's contest with the Panthers.
Texier was assigned to the taxi squad Sunday, per TSN.
Texier has featured prominently for the Blue Jackets with five points and nine shots through six games. This is likely a paper move after Columbus filed Jack Roslovic's new contract Sunday -- expect Texier to be back with the big club ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Panthers.
Texier notched a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings.
The play required a review to rule out goaltender interference. Texier was credited with the goal by the end of the game, but there's a chance it could end up going to Liam Foudy instead. The 21-year-old Texier has already produced four points, nine shots on goal and four PIM through four contests. While he's centering the third line, Texier gets enough power-play time on the second unit to be considered an honorary top-six forward. His production so far certainly fits the bill.
General manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Sunday that Texier is healthy and will head back to Columbus soon, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Texier was playing for Grenoble in France, but it appears his tenure overseas will come to an abrupt end. There was speculation that Texier suffered an injury after he left Thursday's game early. However, Kekalainen clarified that Texier is healthy, citing that the game was getting out of hand and increasingly physical, so the 21-year-old forward was held out as a precaution. With NHL training camp starting soon, Texier will set his sight on the 2020-21 season with the Blue Jackets.
Texier was injured playing for Grenoble in France, though the severity of the problem remains unknown, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.
Texier has played in just two games for Grenoble, registering one goal, two PIM and a minus-1 rating. The 21-year-old center was likely to head back to North America soon in the lead up to the Jackets' training camp, so this injury comes at an unfortunate time. Texier saw action in just 36 games with Columbus last season, recording 13 points. He figures to exceed those numbers in 2020-21 even with a shortened campaign, assuming his injury isn't anything severe.
Texier will begin the season on loan in France.
Texier was originally going to play in Finland to start the year but a family matter led him to return to his native France. Instead, the center will play with his hometown club for which he came up through the youth ranks. The last time Texier played for Grenoble was back in 2016-17 in which he recorded 10 goals and nine assists in 40 contests. Once the Jackets report to training camp, Texier will rejoin the club and should push for a top-six role this season.
Texier's loan to KalPa (Finland) has been terminated after he left the club to deal with a family matter.
Shortly after arriving agreeing to start the year overseas with KalPa, Texier returned to his native France to attend to a family matter. The 21-year-old center figures to rejoin the Blue Jackets when NHL training camps kick-off ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
The Blue Jackets have loaned Texier to HIFK Helsinki of Finland's Liiga.
Texier appeared in 36 regular-season games with Columbus in 2019-20, notching six goals and 13 points before adding four helpers in 10 postseason contests. He'll begin the 2020-21 campaign overseas, but he'll undoubtedly be recalled ahead of the Jackets' training camp for next season.
Texier generated an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss versus the Maple Leafs in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
