San Jose Sharks v Vegas Golden Knights

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — San Jose Sharks' Evander Kane allegedly owes the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas a half-million dollars, according to a court complaint.

The casino filed a lawsuit on Monday claiming Kane borrowed $500,000 in gambling markers back in April and has yet to pay the money back.

The documents allege he took out eight credits:

  • $100,000
  • $80,000
  • $100,000
  • $40,000
  • $40,000
  • $40,000
  • $80,000
  • $20,000

The Cosmopolitan is also seeking attorney's fees, costs, interest and damages in excess of $15,000.

Kane has a rocky history with Las Vegas. Vegas Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves and Kane have had a long standing rivalry.

In October, Reaves called Kane "weak" for "being taken down by a ref" in response to questions about Kane's 3-game suspension.

"Got to get in the gym, no?" said Reaves.

The next Vegas Golden Knights game against the Sharks is Nov. 21 at T-Mobile Arena.
