The Cosmopolitan casino in Las Vegas is suing NHL player Evander Kane over $500,000 in gambling markers that he took out during last spring's playoff series between the San Jose Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights.
Kane took out eight different gambling credits on or about April 15th during the series. The credits ranged from between $20,000 and $100,000 and were never repaid. During the time that the credits were issued, the Sharks were playing the Knights, losing both games to the home team. Kane was a non-factor in the games, and he was ejected for sucker-punching Knights player Colin Miller in Game 4.
In addition to the $500,000, the Cosmpolitan is seeking legal fees associated with pressing the case in court.
We'll update readers as an outcome on the case is determined.
