San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane is being sued a half-million dollars by The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, for unpaid gambling markers, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
A gambling marker is a form of credit given by casinos to certain patrons, which allow the gamblers to more easily access large sums of money. Kane reportedly took out eight separate credits totaling $500,000 in mid-April, during the Sharks’ playoff series with the Las Vegas Golden Knights. According to the lawsuit filed on Monday, he never paid them back.
Neither the Sharks nor Kane have responded to the report. Kane, 28, is in the the second year of a seven-year, $49 million deal.
