Dennis "Svenskeren" Johnsen is the Jungler for Team SoloMid.
He would join the Copenhagen Wolves in August of 2012. The team would have moderate success, making it to the semifinals of DreamHack Winter 2012, falling 0-2 to CLG Europe. They would also place second at THOR Open 2012 and would then earn first place finishes at NorthCon eSport Arena 2012 and Eclypsia Christmas Cup.
During the inaugural spring split of the LCS, Svenskeren would play on Copenhagen Wolves but the team didn't have much success. They would place 5th in the regular season with a 13-15 record. In playoffs, they fell 1-2 to Evil Geniuses in the Quarterfinal. In the Summer Split, Svenskeren would leave the team to join the Ninjas in Pyjamas. NiP would achieve similar results to the Wolves, placing 5th in the regular season with a 15-13 record. Svenskeren would not play for the team in the playoffs. He would then leave the team in November of 2013 to join SK Gaming. Near the end of 2013, SK would go on a winning spree in smaller tournaments, getting 1st place finishes in EUW Challenger Series #15, Black Monster Cup #4, WePlay LoL Invitational and DreamHack Winter 2013.
SK Gaming would participate in the 2014 season of the LCS. In the Spring Split, SK would have a very impressive regular season run, finishing 1st with an 18-10 record. But they would fall 1-3 to Fnatic in the finals, finishing 2nd. Summer was tougher for SK, as they would finish 4th in the regular season with a 15-13 record. After finishing 3rd in the playoffs, SK Gaming would qualify for the 2014 World Championship, this being Sven's first worlds appearance. However, right before the group stages began, Svenskeren was caught using an offensive summoner name which was declared to be racist by Riot. He was then banned from SK Gaming's first three group stage games. Despite taking one game off of Taipei Assassins and Team SoloMid, SK Gaming finished 3rd in the group and was unable to advance.
Svenskeren's first appearance as TSM's jungler was at IEM Season X - San Jose where they would defeat LGD Gaming 2-0 to advance to the semifinals but would then lose 0-2 to Origen. TSM would also later attend IEM Season X - World Championship as the defending champions. They were however unable to defend their title, only making it to the semifinals where they lost 0-2 to SK Telecom T1. After a very shaky regular season in the 2016 NA LCS Spring Split, TSM entered the 2016 NA LCS Spring Playoffs as the 6th seed, the lowest in the organization's history. They were however able to defy expectations and make it to the finals, defeating Cloud9 and the heavy favorites Immortals. In the finals they would face off against rivals Counter Logic Gaming and despite a close 5 game series, CLG was able to win the championship with a 3-2 win. This meant TSM failed to qualify for the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational. Despite some disappointing results, the team went to bootcamp in Korea in preparation for the Summer Split. TSM proved to be the most dominant team in NA after going 17-1 in the regular season of the summer split. Heading into the 2016 NA LCS Summer Playoffs as the heavy favorites, they proved to be the best after defeating Counter Logic Gaming in the semifinals and then Cloud9 in the finals, taking home their fourth NA LCS title and qualifying for the 2016 World Championship as NA's #1 seed.

- Made a game ID which was perceived as racist before the World Championship series began and was banned from the first three matches of the WCE and fined $2,500 by Riot for violations of World Championship Rule 9.2.4 against such racist conduct. After a number of previous incidents regarding such conduct, Riot ruled this "severe misconduct" and took the action only one day before SK Gaming's first matches in the 2014 World Championships. 
- Performed a baronsteal with
Gragas against LGD on his first game with TSM at IEM San Jose.
