I kind of hope he's back in Edmonton next year as him and Gernat seem to be a really good pair. Also, he would look good on team Canada of course. If he's truly ready for the big show next year then all the power to him. I'd just hate to see another Baily/Nino situation.
I just can't see the Isles not sending him back to Juniors. As of now they have Streit, Hamonic, Visnovsky, MacDonald, Carkner; and one of deHaan, Donovan and Ness in the final spot.

That said, even if they had room for him I don't see them rushing this kid. He's expected to be a top-pairing guy here for a long time and I don't see them taking risks with him.
