If the player is going into his final year of Jr A hockey and is currently getting interest from Div 1 schools I would think the best bet would be to stay and see what firms up. Changing leagues you never know where you sit on the roster, and getting the prime ice you mention he has may be more difficult to get in order to showcase skills. It can be harder to land a D1 in your final year as D1 teams tend to scout, recruit and commit a few years ahead to firm up their roster spots in advance, however a few spots do open up for players who decided to take another route at the last moment.

Don't know how much can be asked for, but moving back is an option and then get the new team to figure out all the back door arrangements. When a team realizes a player has gone back home and no intention of coming back to another province, the incentive changes to getting something back and the longer it drags they could be left with nothing by way of player or compensation which is always a motivation to finalize a deal.
