Team Kinguin have announced that Dennis "dennis" Edman has committed to a long-term contract with the organisation.
The Swedish player had been filling in for Kinguin as a substitute since the team parted ways with their in-game leader, Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson.
With Dennis "dennis" Edman as a stand-in, Kinguin were able to secure a spot at the upcoming offline qualifier for ESL One Cologne, where four spots at the $250,000 major will be on offer.

Even after spending several months on the sidelines, Edman was able to impress during the tournament - which has prompted Kinguin to tie the player down.
"The release of 'SKYTTEN' was hard for me, because he was one of my best friends," said Mikail "Maikelele" Bill.
"We played together for almost three years so this decision was that much harder for all the sides involved. Today we present you our new member, 'dennis', who is and have been, one of the most savage players out there.
"We all know what he's capable of and we know that he will bring the experience and firepower we need to succeed as a team.
"I'm happy to see all the positive comments regarding our team and hopefully I will read a lot more of them in the future."
The 24-year-old talent rose to fame in early 2011 when he joined SK Gaming, stepping into the shoes of Jimmy "allen" Allen.
After switching to CS:GO, Edman had two brief spells in Absolute Legends, but he would only find success after joining LGB eSports, whom he helped to a sensational 3rd-4th place finish at EMS One Katowice 2014.
With the Swedish player's addition, Team Kinguin now have:
Mikail "Maikelele" Bill
Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom
Ricardo "fox" Pacheco
