yes, the MHL (also known as the YHL) is the same thing as Canadian Hockey League in NA. One difference though - it works in a similar manner NHL/AHL and KHL/VHL works - players can play for an MHL team, be brought to the adult KHL/VHL team for a couple of games affiliated with the MHL team and then returned to the MHL team if needed. You see - there are affiliations between KHL, VHL and MHL teams. Unlike NA's NHL, that doesn't have ties with CHL teams.
So yes, MHL is the top of the junior hockey pyramid of Russia.
Edit: However you don't have an analogue to the Junior A, Junior B, etc. in Russia
