15-year-old Finn to stand in for MOUZ NXT

The academy team needed a fifth man after JDC's promotion to the main team.

MOUZ NXT has been one of the most successful academy teams in recent history. The team has won the new WePlay Academy League three times in a row, while two of their players have been promoted to the main team within the last couple of months, with Jon "⁠JDC⁠" de Castro being the most recent.

In his place, MOUZ NXT has looked north to find the replacement. 15-year-old Jimi "⁠Jimpphat⁠" Salo from Finland has been picked to fill out the gap, that JDC left behind. The young Finn has only played in all-Finnish lineups, but will now have the chance to explore his game outside of his home country. Jimpphat is the brother of ex-ENCE Jere "⁠sergej⁠" Salo. There is no official confirmation on how long Jimpphat will play as a stand-in for the team.

The young Finn has already had his debut on his new team. He helped MOUZ NXT to a 2-0 win against GamerLegion earlier today, with Jimi "⁠Jimpphat⁠" Salo going 28-25 in K-D.
