No. No and No.
They are Russians, they will not play for USA and Canada (and if they could, they have a 0 chance regarding to their skills) and Russian leagues are enough competetive. There is MHL, MHL B etc.
In the GMHL is one team, Shelburne Red Wings, owner from Russia. And he wants to have players from his homecountry. But they have to pay - around 5000 USD for a season.
