The Swedish based Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team, Ninjas in Pyjamas will for the time being use one of their former members, William 'draken' Sundin as a stand-in.
The AWP-er will
stand-in for Denis 'dennis' Edman, the team Captain, whom will take a break for the time being.
It seems the pistol meister feels a bit fatigued and thus the managers of the team decided to let him recover.
The official statement regarding the move was made by the managers on the official website of the team, there it is written:
" Our player, Dennis “dennis" Edman, has been experiencing some energy fatigue due to heavy scheduling over the last period of time. In order to prevent this from escalating, we have mutually agreed for Dennis to take some time off to recover before returning to competitive play.
The upcoming schedule for the Counter-Strike team is heavy, and we do not want to take any risks with regards to our players' health. Dennis will undergo further medical examination in the upcoming days, and we are looking forward to seeing him return once he is ready to compete again. As Dennis recovers, we will be welcoming a familiar face to the Ninjas in Pyjamas active roster for the upcoming events.
We are pleased to announce that we have found a good replacement in William “draken" Sundin, who will be taking on the AWP-role for the Ninjas in Pyjamas. During William's last tenure with NiP, we saw a resurgence with us ultimately lifting the IEM Oakland trophy.
We are looking forward to seeing our boys compete during the upcoming events, and will keep all our fans updated on the progress of Dennis.
Dennis, we wish you a speedy recovery and hope to see you back soon! #GONINJAS.
