Danil "Dendi" Ishutin​ will stand in for Team Secret for the next week, according to an announcement posted to Twitter Tuesday by the organization.


Dendi will take the place of Team Secret's usual mid laner, Yeik "MidOne" Nai Zheng, during the remainder of the ​Dota 2 Maincast Autumn Brawl, an online Minor that began Saturday and is scheduled to run through Oct. 14.

After almost eight years on Natus Vincere, Dendi was ​removed from the team's active roster Sept. 1 in the roster reshuffling that occurred throughout the Dota 2 scene following The International 8.


On Team Secret, Dendi will rejoin Clement "Puppey" Ivanov, his teammate of three years on Natus Vincere. The two last played together at the 2015 Dota 2 All Star game, footage of which was employed in Team Secret's announcement concerning Dendi standing in.


Team Secret earned a fifth place finish at TI8, and has since conquered the Kuala Lumpur Major Europe qualifier.
