Charles Sarault

Can anyone give a scouting report on him and explain why he wasn't drafted? He is leading the OHL in scoring after a 5 point game today and I know points aren't everything I would like to know if anyone has an explanation as to why he was skipped over in the draft and if you think he will get selected this year.

I searched for a thread about him and couldn't find one.

Reid Boucher has a great shot, good goalscorer. And Galchendyuk had almost 2.0 PPG playing with Sarault.

Sarault from what I saw in Sarnia, was a very good passer and had good chemistry with Boucher.

Dunno if he will get drafted tho.

Size. That's the only issue.

He's an overager and thus not eligible for the 2013 draft. Some team might give him a try-out though.

Correct, he's currently a free agent.

The thing I've absolutely loved about Charles Sarault, is his progression as an OHL player. When he came into the league, with Kingston and originally with Sarnia, he was primarily an energy/forecheck guy who created primarily off using speed to disrupt things in the offensive zone. He's evolved into one of the league's premier puck possession players and a terrific playmaker. He has great vision too.

I think he'll get signed to an AHL deal at the very least. A guy like Andrew Agozzino did that last year and he was an AHL all star this year and is bound to get an NHL contract after one year of pro. And at the most, someone will give him an NHL deal and hope he develops into the next David Descharnais.

I think the Devils might give him a shot. They need guys with high offensive ceilings in a weak forward pool and he has obvious chemistry with Boucher.

He wasn't anything special until his 19-year-old season and even then, he was being overshadowed by Yakupov. Then this season, he was being overshadowed by Galchenyuk. Now that both guys are gone, we can finally see what Sarault is capable of when he is the best player that the other team's top defenders are trying to shut down.

Signed by Anaheim. Will report to the Norfolk Admirals when his season in Sarnia ends.

Well that's according to a report on Twitter. Ducks haven't made it official.

Probably true. I wouldn't be surprised if the habs wanted him, but felt too much youth in Hamilton would be a bad thing. If the season had started on time, he would have been at the habs camp iirc.

Brendan Ranford would have been there, too.

Too bad the Habs had invited him to the camp before the lockout.

Glad to see him get rewarded with a contract for his efforts. One of those guys I knew had the potential, but the stupid Kingston organization simply never gave an opportunity.

If nothing else, at least he'll be a good addition to Norfolk. God knows their fans need something to be happy about after we raided their team of their best talent.

Justin Schultz disagrees with this statement.

To answer the question of why he's an OA without being drafted..

- He's been a little inconsistent (to be fair so have several other key players for Sarnia this season)
- He's 5'10" at best, so unfortunately there have been many small players who produce in juniors, but don't do as well in the pros.
- He was a late bloomer who never really showed his potential until coming to Sarnia last year.

As for why the Ducks would pick him up..

He can be a very good two-way player. When he's on, he's playing in all three zones. He's not the most aggressive player but he has good defensive positioning. Offensively he's an excellent passer, yes he has Boucher shooting the puck, but Boucher benefits from Sarault being able to find him just as much as Sarault has benefitted from having Boucher (and for the first half of the season Galchenyuk) shooting the puck when he passes it. For me, the AHL will be a big step for him, but if he proves he can still play a two-way game, then playing for Anaheim isn't out of the question becasue he's going to be a lot safer in his own zone than some of the Anaheim forward prospects at the top.

I think Sarault has proven he deserves a shot at the pro level, and instead of leaving it to chance, Anaheim has picked him up. Toronto Maple Leafs invited him to rookie camp last year, and I heard he did well there.

Very happy for Sarault. I always liked him in Sarnia and can't wait to see him get his chance. Hopefully it works out in Anaheim, should he get a look at the NHL.

Nearly all of our forward prospects are notable for being defensively responsible.

For those who have seen him play, would you say that a comparison to someone like Cory Conacher is appropriate? He seems like an undersized guy who sees the game very quickly and plays a strong forechecking game, and has the passing ability to take advantage of his vision.
