2008-09: After being drafted 35th overall in the 2008 OHL priority selection by Kingston, Sarault appeared in all 68 games for the Frontenacs primarily in a third/fourth line role, contributing two goals and nine assists with a -14 on the year.
2009-10: Saw action in 62 of the Frontenacs’ games and netted four goals, while adding 12 helpers. Positioned in a checking role, Sarault was again a third and fourth line forward for the Frontenacs, and was -19 on the season. Played in six playoff games adding a goal and three assists. Undrafted because of concerns surrounding his size skill.
2010-11: In what appeared to be a move up the depth chart, Sarault contributed more offensively, with 13 goals and 25 assists in a season that saw him on the positive side of the +/- category for the first time in his OHL career, finishing the year at +1. In five playoff games with the Fronts, Sarault had a goal and an assist.
2011-12: Acquired in August by the Sarnia Sting for a third round pick in 2013 and a fifth round pick in 2015. Sarault broke out while playing with Nail Yakupov. Scored 20 goals and 67 assists in 68 games for 87 points and was a +6 on the year. Sarault transformed from his traditional role as a checking player to a playmaker but showed his ability to play in both ends of the rink. Sarault also contributed four assists in a six-game playoff run for the Sting.
A complete turn around from the beginning of his career in the OHL, Charlie Sarault has proven to be a dynamic player at both ends of the ice. Amazing hands and vision make him a threat whenever the puck is on his stick. He is a 200-foot player that is extremely reliable in his own end who rarely is caught in the wrong position. Sarault has an underrated shot, but his ability to find the open man and move the puck exactly where it needs to be will be his biggest strength moving forward.
The Anaheim Ducks signed a capable center in Charlie Sarault and will expect him to continue the type of production he has had in Sarnia over the last two seasons. Although he has had the likes of Reid Boucher and Alex Galchenyuk to finish off his passes at points during the season, his vision and all-around game have made him Sarnia's most valuable player this season.
Sarault has the potential to be a top-six center in the NHL. Anaheim is fairly deep down the middle, but Sarault can make an impact especially with the impending retirement of Saku Koivu. Expect Sarault to begin his professional career with the Norfolk Admirals.
