While I'm sure there's room for debate since he'd be playing against a lot of former NHLer's, the style of that league is nothing like the NHL while the AHL is very similar.
KHL is a better league than the AHL, the problem is, you cant come up and down once you go to the KHL. If hes only going there for 1 year, the KHL could be great for his development, especially since hes tearing it apart with the numbers hes putting up (PPG in a league where they dont give out secondary assists is amazing for a kid that young)
