Btw, there is article how agent abused him.
Maybe I'm mistaken but isn't the VHL to the KHL like the ECHL is to the NHL?
Isn't the MHL the main farm system in the KHL?

VHL is like AHL to the KHL. The MHL would be like WHL/OHL/QMJHL. MHL is strictly a junior league.

Thanks. Thought it might be something like that that was confusing me. So there's no age limit to play in the VHL like the NHL/CHL agreement I take it, since Porkins is still 19?

Nope. Since the MHL is owned by the KHL(AFAIK), they aren't concerned about retaining their junior aged players, so no such agreement exists. Only reason that exists in NHL-CHL is since the junior teams want to retain their stars, but for player development it would be so much better for a lot of these players to be playing in AHL at 19.

Holden Caulfield is right about KHL-VHL-MHL system. I would add that MHL is 17-21y league (3 spots for 21y old guys). If KHL club has affiliation in VHL, 19-21y guy use to play VHL instead of MHL. It is better for their development. Club has 25 guys in KHL, another 30 guys in MHL and 6-10 can be send to VHL. There is a limit in VHL, at least 5 guys have to be under 23y, another at least 5 guys under 25y. Nichuskin, born 1995, is playing VHL for example.

Prokhorkin scored 2 goals in his 2nd VHL game (for THK Tver, farm team of CSKA Moscow) after coming back from LA.
