In the latest from the Evander Kane saga, Kane is now accusing his estranged wife of being a husband beater. More specifically, he is claiming Anna Kane punched him in the face multiple times in past — and now, Kane has obtained a domestic violence temporary restraining order (TRO), according to TMZ.

The restraining order is detailed in court documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, which show Kane was granted a TRO earlier this month after he alleged Anna Kane had been violent with him in the past.

Evander says in the court documents that the physical altercations first began in 2019 — about a year after they were married — saying Anna got so upset with him during an argument that she hit him “7-8 times in the face with her fist.”

According to TMZ, in October of 2020, Evander said Anna again struck him in the face after they had an argument while Anna’s mother was visiting. Less than a year later, in April 2021, Evander said his wife exploded on him again … after she had gone through his phone.

The 30-year-old San Jose Shark said Anna “started uncontrollably throwing things at me” … before she punched and slapped him repeatedly in the head and face.

Evander also said in July, there was yet another incident of violence … claiming when he was trying to get away from Anna after an argument in San Jose, she pushed him and also violently tugged on a bag he had thrown over his shoulder.

Previous Troubles

The TRO is the latest in a long line of incidents for Evander Kane. Earlier this summer Kane’s estranged wife took to Instagram to blast Evander, stating he was betting on NHL games, including his own Sharks games. The below post includes all of Anna Kane’s accusations against her husband:

Anna Kane also accused her husband of essentially abandoning her, their one-year-old daughter Kensington and unborn son, forcing them to move out of their home by themselves while he partied in Europe.

Kane responded to the accusations a day later with a statement he released on his Twitter page.

According to Radar Online, Kane’s wife slapped the San Jose Sharks’ player with divorce papers weeks before accusing him of betting on his own hockey games. According to court documents obtained by Radar, Anna filed for divorce from Evander on July 16.

Then just last week The Athletic reported that a federal bankruptcy judge gave the go-ahead for discovery in a lawsuit filed by Hope Parker, who alleges Kane reneged on a promise to pay her at least $2 million if she aborted their pregnancy. That means Parker, who first sued in 2018 in California state court, can begin seeking testimony and electronic correspondence from Kane, who says he changed his mind about paying Parker before she sent him proof of the abortion.

Earlier in August The Athletic reported that Kane’s San Jose Sharks teammates would prefer he be traded than return to the team. Several key Sharks players informed team brass that if Kane was going to be a part of the Sharks going forward, they didn’t want to be.

In January of this year, Kane filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy listing assets totaling just over $10.2 million and his liabilities at over $26.8 million. According to the petition, he lost $1.5 million due to gambling “at casino and via bookie (sports betting).”

In November of 2019, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas filed a lawsuit in Clark County District Court alleging Evnder Kane failed to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers the casino extended to him in April.

The court documents stated 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.

    I don’t know the details (probably don’t want to) but I can’t imagine a hockey player quietly taking abuse.

    she hit him “7-8 times in the face with her fist.” Anna again struck him in the face. she punched and slapped him repeatedly in the head and face.

    At least three incidents where she physically abused him and he did nothing? No police report, no legal action, no retaliation on his part? But then I can’t understand why she stayed with him either.

    The Sharks and the NHL both need to cut ties with him as well.

      This is a pretty awful take. Surely you’re aware of the alarming frequency of unreported domestic violence. And how would a hockey player be any different than any other victim of domestic violence?
