Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen holds the key to TSM’s early game success. He struggled to find his footing initially after joining the team in the spring of 2015, but since then he has almost singlehandedly ramped up TSM’s early-game aggression. He makes sure opposing teams feel his jungle pressure by playing strong ganking champions like Rek’Sai, Gragas, and Nidalee.
Svenskeren captured the world’s attention when he styled on opponents as Lee Sin at the 2016 World Championship. While these performances couldn’t carry TSM to much success, the expectations have nevertheless been raised as a result. Sporting his signature pedal-to-the-metal style, he’ll be looking to keep his momentum in full swing as he kicks, punches, and ganks his way through the newly revamped jungle. He’s always been a playmaker, so expect Svenskeren to strike early and often during TSM’s NA LCS title defense this spring.
