The Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting that The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas filed a lawsuit Monday in Clark County District Court alleging San Jose Sharks Evnder Kane failed to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers the casino extended to him in April.
The court documents state that Kane, who is a Canadian citizen, took out eight credits of varying amounts between $20,000 and $100,000 on or about April 15. That date would have fallen between Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup first-round playoff series between the Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights.
Coincidentally, Kane and Vegas Knights’ thug Ryan Reaves got into a brawl during Game 3 of the 2019 playoff series, the night before the Cosmopolitan issued the casino markers to Kane. The rivalry has made Kane enemy No. 1 for Knights’ fans.
Kane, nor the Sharks have yet to publicly comment on the alleged lawsuit.
