COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Blue Jackets and National Hockey League announced Wednesday the revised schedule for the remainder of the 2021-22 regular season. The new schedule reflects rescheduled dates for games postponed in December and January, as well as future games that were adjusted to accommodate team travel schedules league wide.
For much of this season, there's been no reason for anything but smiles out of the Blue Jackets forward. In a season where evaluation for future campaigns takes on a role of outsized importance, Texier has been one of the top bright spots for Columbus. His development into one of the top forwards on the team, one that can be trusted in all situations at age 22, has been a welcome development for a Blue Jackets team that is counting on a number of young players to take big steps forward this season.
It’s been almost two years since the Blues announced they would do it, and on Monday the team will retire Chris Pronger’s No. 44. When the team announced on Feb. 8, 2020 that it would do it, it was envisioned it would happen during the 2020-21 season. But the COVID limitations on crowds kept the team from having the celebration it wanted, so it was pushed back another season.
The annual opening of the international signing period has been nicknamed "Jesse Sanchez Day" because of the attention, care, insight and depth of coverage MLB.com baseball writer Jesse Sanchez has brought to that market and the talents it introduces to baseball and baseball fans. In a brand new Best Podcast in Baseball, recorded a few days after the Jan. 15 opening of the international market, Sanchez talks with St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold about the challenges that faced players and scouts alike as they negotiated deals and identified players during a global pandemic. More than just the calendar shifted. Sanchez also offers a scouting report on the prized signing by the Cardinals -- switch-hitting shortstop Jonathan Mejia, a 16-year-old from the Dominican Republic. Plus, the two writers detail how the Cardinals scouted and ultimately signed Won-Bin Cho, the teenage slugger from South Korea who is also the first amateur player from Asia to sign with the Cardinals.
