What is “ganking”?

While watching a youtube video, I came across a sentence that went something like "as an assassin, you want to be constantly 'genking' for your team mates." (Since it was a video, I'm not 100% about the spelling). I tried googling, but had trouble finding something helpful...

Could someone please enlighten me about the meaning of "genking"? Is it a general concept, or is it specific to the game League of Legends? I haven't actually played this game myself, I am just curious.

In case you'd like to see exactly what I'm talking about, it happens around 3:10 in this video.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I suspect they meant to say "ganking".

I think it was probably "ganking". Assassins should theoretically be able to quickly slit the throat of random enemies that come up, so in a sense it's "overkill" like ganking. See
