The Halifax Mooseheads placed 19-year-old centre Andrew Wigginton on waivers yesterday.

The Halifax native had three goals in 28 games after being acquired from the Bathurst Titan midway through last season.

The strong play of numerous youngsters at training camp squeezed the older Wigginton out of the picture up front.

The Mooseheads host the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in QMJHL pre-season play at the Forum Saturday at 7 p.m. and have a rematch in Sydney Sunday at 4 p.m.
