Young Ninjas, the academy team for Ninjas In Pyjamas, have released Linus "LNZ" Holtäng, Love "phzy" Smidebrant and Anton "Sapec" Palmgren from the roster.
The aforementioned pair of LNZ and phzy stood in at multiple points for the main roster, with the latter standing in for the majority of 2022, where he helped them to finish top four at ESL Pro League Season 15.
LNZ won IEM Fall Europe 2021 with the main roster but was dropped back to the academy side after they exited the PGL Major Stockholm in November at the quarter-final stage.
Although LNZ and phzy are yet to find new teams, Sapec had already been playing with former fnatic star Jesper "JW" Wecksell on Hellslayers, which will now become his permanent home.
In terms of additions, Young Ninjas have signed 15-year-old AWPer Adrian "7EMPORARY" Mehrara, while also bringing in 17-year-olds Adam "adamb" Angstrom and Max "maxster" Jansson.
Of the signings, Ninjas In Pyjamas' Technical Director Björn "THREAT" Pers said: "adamb and maxster have been climbing the lower ranks of the swedish scene swiftly and have already shown some great results.
"On top of that we add 7EMPORARY - a young and hungry sniper with huge potential. We believe this trio is very eager to ascend to its true potential."
Due to the changes, Young Ninjas drop outside the world's top 100, but having reached a peak of 35th with their previous roster, they will be hoping to return to the fringes of the top 30 in the near future.
