He has played some LW this year, but I don't know if he would see time there at the pro level.

It depends on how much you value skill vs hard work and heart. All of Gallagher, Leblanc and Bournival are hard working players at both ends of the ice whereas Kristo is a lot more inconsistent with his efforts. But Kristo does have a high skill level, for me it's very close between Leblanc, Gallagher and Kristo as I think they all have high end offensive skills (although there are still major questions if any will be able to translate said skills at the NHL level), but I continue to have Leblanc and Gallagher higher due to their more complete game and heart.

He has played RW the majority of the time, only a handful of games did he play LW so not sure if he would see time there in the future, although he didn't have any problems at LW so if he had to I think he could do so and be fine. I would think the team would keep him at RW but I guess we'll see.

It's possible but not something I would expect as he's one of the top forwards in the NCAA again, so it would have to be really bad to walk away from a speedy skilled winger like that.
