In terms of lbs I don't think he would even want to be above 210 lbs.
Really no reason for him to gain that much weight for playing in the WHL, he's only 14. It's about improving his explosiveness, core strength and leg strength at this point going forward. Don't see that being a jump of about 30 lbs. Maybe a few seasons into the NHL but you seem to be randomly asserting he'll grow a whole bunch height and weight wise.
And the Brayden Schenn comparison is a pretty good one, I think I can get on board with that for now.
My lbs projections were based on a 3-4 year growth window of 3-4 inches.
