Sharks forward Evander Kane is being sued for $500,000 by The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review–Journal's Mick Akers. The casino is reportedly suing Kane due to unpaid gambling markers.

The Cosmopolitan will also seek "repayment of legal fees associated with the lawsuit," per Akers.

Kane reportedly took out eight gambling markers totaling $500K in April. He was in Las Vegas for the first-round playoff series between the Sharks and the Golden Knights, a series San Jose won in seven games. 

The No. 4 pick in the 2009 draft joined the Sharks in 2018. San Jose is his third NHL franchise after stints in Atlanta (then Winnipeg) and Buffalo. 

Kane signed a seven-year, $49 million contract extension with the Sharks in May 2018.
