Trades can only happen between teams in the same league. So in Kabanov's case, his team can only trade him to another team in the QMJHL.

However, there are situations were players can switch leagues. If he's put on waivers in the Q, and all teams pass on him, he's free to be signed by any team in either the WHL or OHL (there might be a waiver priority to determine who gets first shot at these "free agents").

Former Islander Jon Sim actually went through this. He started in the Q, but for whatever reason didn't stick, and was waived through the league. Sarnia, in the OHL, picked him up.
