The NHL is the major professional league for Canada and the U.S. Then there's minor pro, also considered to be a farm system, which includes the AHL, ECHL and a couple of others I don't really know. In Canada, the next step down is Junior hockey, under the umbrella of the CHL. That's divided into the WHL, OHL, QMJHL, and includes players up to high school. The NHL website has links to all of this stuff. You forget to mention the European elite leagues, where the Russians and the Finns, Chezks and Swedes play. They send their fair share of players to the NHL.
