He will probably get a chance to try out for the Canadian WJ team at least in the summer camp, and although there aren't many spots up for grabs on the back end next year, he can compete for one with a good season next year. He will anchor the Giants defense next year for the Memorial Cup, hopefully drawing on experience he gains in a long playoff run this year.
In any case, every other team in the league is jealous of your defensive depth. It's not fair.
Franson can really shoot the puck...he's getting more opportunities to do this with Mikkelson (ANA) and Fistric (DAL) out of the Giants lineup.
