JD Gaming announced Thursday that former Team Griffen jungler Jin-hyoek "Kanavi" Seo joined the team.


"We, Team Griffin, has decided to give him [Kanavi] a valuable opportunity for the smell of powder in a new stage. Please give cheers to Kanavi who will be the best Jungler in LPL," Team Griffin said in its announcement.


Kanavi makes the move to the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) in China after falling to SK Telecom T1 in the LCK spring playoffs. Despite being the team to watch in LCK for two splits, Griffin failed to win a regional championship and qualify for Worlds 2018.


JD Gaming comes off its best performance in an LPL playoffs losing out to reigning world champions Invictus Gaming in the spring final.
