If the lockout is still going strong in December, I am pretty sure the Oilers will let him go. It might be a different story if he'd played in the WJC before. Hockey Canada might also have to live with him not going to the camp.

I imagine Hockey Canada isn't banking on him being there because they expect the lockout to end before late December.
