Two-time Six Invitational winner Canadian is stepping out of retirement and returning to competitive Rainbow Six Siege.

In March 2021, Troy “Canadian” Jaroslawski announced his retirement from the game, surprising the entire Siege community. But now, the news of the return of this star IGL comes as a delightful shock to everyone.

In a Twitlonger post, Canadian explained how his motivation to return as an esports player was restored when he participated in the Six Invitational 2021. SSG’s Luke was unable to attend SI’ 2021 in Paris due to passport issues, which is when Canadian returned for a brief period.

“After coming back home from SI, I had two main objectives in mind. First, was to take the time to truly think about my situation and make sure if I wanted to return to playing it was with a long term vision in mind. The other was to work on building healthier habits into my lifestyle with the free time I have in order to be a more well equipped and consistent version of myself for whatever I decided to do next. I’ve done a ton of reading, VOD watching, note taking, reflecting, planning, and a little bit of golfing to fill the hours in between. After about a month+ of it I only find myself becoming more and more motivated. I truly believe this is the best mental state I have ever been in. I can’t wait to find a new team to working with, I have a lot more I want to bring to the table than I ever have before. Stay tuned and see you soon.” – Canadian.

Canadian has had a massive impact on the North American region’s success in Siege’s esports scene, and him now returning is a big win for the community.

Right now, Canadian is a free agent and looking for a team. The transfer window will open after the conclusion of the August Mexico Major on Aug. 23.
