He's a permanent resident or he would not have participated in the Allstate game:
National Mentorship Camp Selection Process

The NHLPA tap a wide network of scouts across the country to nominate some of the top bantam-aged players in Canada. Those players will then be invited to apply for one of forty-two (42) spots at the National Mentorship Camp (6 goalies, 12 defensemen, 24 forwards). To be eligible for selection for the Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Camp, players must be fourteen years of age and must be considered a permanent resident of Canada.

He's not a citizen, but he's a permanent resident.
