San Jose Sharks ahead Evander Kane is sued by a casino in Las Vegas for not repaying $ 500,000 to credit markers after gambling between play-off games last April.
Judicial documents obtained by the Daily Mail claim that Kane, 28, received the eight markers from The Cosmopolitan worth between $ 20,000 and $ 100,000 on or around April 15, when the sharks were in town for Games 3 and 4 of their first round series with the Vegas Golden Knights.
According to the court, Kane did not repay those markings.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is also seeking a reimbursement of legal costs from Kane, who signed a seven-year contract with the Sharks in 2018 for a total of $ 49 million.

An email to Kane & # 39; s agent was not returned immediately.
Kane, a native Canadian, was in the news around that time for his brutal Game 3 fight with Ryan Reaves from Las Vegas on April 14.
The Sharks then won that series in seven games before eventually losing to the final Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Finals.
In June a woman filed a $ 6 million lawsuit against Kane under her name, Hope Parker, claiming that the All-Star waived a promise to pay her $ 3 million in exchange for a promise to finish his child to break.
She previously filed the case anonymously, but a judge in Los Angeles County found no reason why she should be allowed to do this.
Parker said earlier that she was periodically dated to Kane between 2015 and 2018, during which time the Vancouver resident mainly played for the Buffalo Sabers. He was traded to the San Jose sharks in February 2018.
According to TMZ, Parker claims to have undergone two abortions after being impregnated by Kane, but refused to do this a third time until he offered her $ 3 million.
After his refusal to pay, Parker sued him for $ 6 million.
The amount of $ 6 million mentioned in the original lawsuit consists of the $ 3 million it claims to have received for the abortion procedure, plus an additional $ 3 million for intentional infliction of emotional distress & # 39 ;.
In November, Kane told reporters that the lawsuit & # 39; a bunch of B.S. & # 39; was and the allegations & # 39; unfounded & # 39; and a & # 39; death problem & # 39; called.
& # 39; Anyone can now say anything they want, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I'm not really going to talk about it anymore, because it won't help me, it won't do good. & # 39;
Paul J. Cambria Jr., Kane & # 39; s lawyer said: & # 39; We are convinced that this lawsuit is factually and legally unfounded.
& # 39; We will aggressively defend this claim in court on behalf of Evander and file all applicable counterclaims. & # 39;
