He's locked in for Canada, he played in the 2011 WJC's for them.

He could technically switch this winter so long as doesn't play in any international tournaments from here until then but I doubt he would do that because outside of being born here he didn't really spend much time in the US until these past few years with the Flyers. He considers himself a Canadian & rightfully so.
In case the player has previously played in IIHF-organized competition but wishes to switch national eligibility, he must have played in competitions for four consecutive years in the new country without playing in another country, he must show his move to the new country's national association with an international transfer card, as well as be a citizen of the new country. A player may only switch national eligibility once.
