While I know the VHL is the Russian equivalent of the AHL, and the KHL aims to rival the NHL, I don't know zilch about the MHL other than some members of the Russian squad who won the gold in the WJC are MHL players.
In Canada there are many youth leagues (Quebec, Ontario...)
In Russia - MHL. Players MHL play in the basic teams KHL. It is all. Clearly?
