Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane is being sued by a Vancouver man who says he was assaulted last year, reports CBC News.

Kane has not been charged with any crime, and Vancouver authorities investigated the incident and said "there was insufficient evidence to support or recommend any criminal charges."

According to the civil claim, the man says that he was attacked by Kane in August 2013 and suffered a concussion and injuries to the head, neck, shoulders, back, chest, ribs, left leg and heel.

"The plaintiff's injuries have and will continue to cause him suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent physical disability, loss of earning capacity, past and future, and loss of housekeeping capacity, past and future," the civil claim reads in part.

"The plaintiff has suffered ongoing physical and emotional injuries, including injury to his feelings, dignity, pride, and self-respect in all aspects of his personal and vocational pursuits."
