Abigail and Arjun are back with another fun show

The Toronto Raptors are getting ready for a season far from home, but that doesn’t mean fans are far from their hearts.

“We’re right here with you guys,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri told CBC Kids News contributor Arjun Ram on Sunday.

The Raptors are in Tampa Bay, Florida, where they’ll be playing the upcoming season starting on Dec. 22.

“We talk about this every day,” Ujiri said, “about the fans, about the following, about the youth.”

But the Raptors aren’t immune to the COVID-19 pandemic, as the team announced on Monday that three players tested positive for the virus.

Annual hockey tournament on hold

Meanwhile, things are a bit less certain for the World Junior Hockey Championships.

Dawson Mercer, one of the star players expected to play on Team Canada, had to quarantine during the selection camp as he waits to find out how the tournament will work or if it will happen at all.
