Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced that Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi will return to their active lineup with immediate effect.

The 23-year-old spent the last three months on the sidelines recovering from an hand injury, with Mikail “Maikelele” Bill, a former member of NiP, coming on in his stead on a temporary basis.

With Maikelele as a stand-in, NiP won the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 2 and finished third-fourth at the ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals.

pyth back on NiP’s roster

Before Saturday’s match against G2 Esports in the group stage of ELEAGUE Season 2, Maikelele hinted that it could be his “final match” for the team, who would beat the Frenchmen 2-0 to secure a spot in the playoffs of the $1.4 million competition.

“I got more nervous from watching the matches at home than playing them because you get a different view of the game,” Mourujärvi told NiP’s website.

“Sometimes when they lost I wish I could do something about it.

“It feels really good to be back again with the boys. Thanks for the support and everyone that believes in me!”

NiP’s first event with Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi back on the roster will be IEM Oakland, from November 16-20, a tournament that will have $300,000 on offer.

The Swedish giants are back to the following lineup:

Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund
Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg
Richard “Xizt” Landström
Adam “friberg” Friberg
