Las Vegas Casino Is Suing San Jose Sharks’ Evander Kane Over $500k In Gambling Markers

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.

    And a few years back there were Internet Caps Fans upset that GMGM or GMBM didn’t bring the magnificent Mr. Kane to Washington via trade or free agency. Mr. Kane was notorious in Winnipeg and Buffalo for public rudeness and not leaving a tip for waiters/waitresses at local restaurants — after feasting and drinking expensively
