If a rookie signs an Entry-Level-Contract 3 years, two way- does this mean he MUST play in the NHL or AHL?

Like say if a Russian who got drafted signs a 3 year entry level contract, does this mean he must play in the NHL or AHL? and not able to go back to the KHL? or can he have a contract of three year entry level and still play in the KHL?
