I know what you mean, and that is a likely way that things could pan out. However it is premature to view him as a non NHL player before witnessing what he can do IMO. If he is clearly a better option than others for the 4th line by out performing them in camp, then he should earn a spot.

However, I do agree that having to have a certain amount of veteran players for preseason games is a very interesting point.
