According to 2010-11 regulations (source:
) a Russian team (there are several non-Russian teams in the league) can have a maximum of 2 foreigners (non-Russian citizens) on the roster at any given time. No foreign goalies allowed. Teams outside Russia in the YHL can have as many foreigners as they want I believe.
Source: page 21, article 46, point 2
(or also called Chevrolet чемпионат МХЛ) which is major junior league as was mentioned earlier,consist of 32 teams (on russian included). Second tier is

Top 6 from west and center will make play off, and top 4 from east. Best 2 teams in play off will promote to MHL A for season 12/13 (they must fulfill conditions of MHL A, especially budget). Two worts from MHL A are relegeted
