H2K's Aleš "Freeze" Kněžínek has announced on social media that he and H2K have agreed that he will be open to offers from other teams until Nov. 15.

H2K signed Freeze in May to replace star ADC Konstantinos "FORG1VEN" Tzortziou, who left the team at the end of the spring split due to “poor in-game synergy.”

However, FORG1VEN returned to the team in July to stand-in for Freeze, who said he was suffering from a wrist injury. Freeze has not played a game for H2K since their Week 8 match against Splyce in the Summer Split, which they lost 2-0.

After FORG1VEN took over as starting ADC, he led H2K to third place in the 2016 EU LCS Summer Playoffs, qualifying them for the 2016 World Championship. FORG1VEN was credited as one of the main reasons H2K was the most successful Western team at Worlds, reaching the semifinals where they were defeated 3-0 by Samsung Galaxy.


Freeze attended Worlds to cheer on the team, and in an interview there on Oct. 16, he said he might continue to sit out for the spring 2017 season. However, he said that he would not let his injury sideline him indefinitely, and he does plan to return to play sometime in 2017.

Prior to joining H2K, Freeze played with Renegades in the NA LCS. He left the team shortly before a competitive ruling forced them to sell their LCS seed.

While playing with H2K in the Summer Split, Freeze averaged a 3.2 KDA ratio and 65.7 percent kill participation.
