A Las Vegas casino is looking for payback, literally, from Evander Kane nearly seven months after the forward and his San Jose Sharks teammates eliminated Vegas in a first-round Stanley Cup playoff series.
The Cosmopolitan casino on Monday filed a lawsuit in Clark County District Court for $ 500,000 US, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, claiming the 28-year-old Vancouver native failed to pay back gambling markers when the Sharks were in town in late April.
The lawsuit alleges Kane withdrew eight markers between $ 20,000 and $ 100,000 US around April 15, or in between Games 3 and 4 of the opening-round playoff series in Las Vegas.
Kane, in the second year of a seven-year, $ 49 million contract, lost around $ 112,000 in salary this season after he was suspended three games for abusing an official during a pre-season game.
