Charle-Edouard D'Astous signed a two year contract with GR at the beginning of the year but was relegated to Toledo until Monday. He was called up, finally, to GR. He is a 21 year old defenseman who is really good on both ends. He can put up points: he had 40-66 pts in all three years he spent at Rimouski in Juniors and had 22 pts at Toledo before being called up. He can play defense: he had a +33 and +34 at Rimouski and was at a +9 at Toledo. He can also play physical with his 6'2" 204lb body. He had 96/68 PM at Rimouski and didn't back away from contact or fighting in Toledo.

At 21 years old and a solid two way game, he screams of what we need in Detroit right now. I would love to see him get a call up by the end of the year.
