Last night, the Las Vegas Review Journal revealed that the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas filed a lawsuit Monday in Clark County District Court alleging San Jose Sharks’ Evander Kane failed to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers the casino extended to him in April.
According to the court documents, Kane 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 playoff series between the Sharks and the Knights last spring.
The casino is reportedly seeking a refund from the gambling markers and repayment of legal fees associated with the lawsuit.
Kane, who is known to have this ongoing feud with Vegas’ Ryan Reaves, appears to be entering another one with the local casino. He should be able to pay them back, he who signed a seven-year deal with the Sharks in 2018 worth $49 million.
On Wednesday, former NHL enforcer John Scott had some fun with the incident and mocked Kane in a hilarious tweet:
We bet Reaves could also have some fun with this lawsuit. The Sharks and Golden Knights meet again on Nov, 21st so we can’t wait to see what will happen next between Kane and Reaves… and Scott?
