Evander Kane has been slapped with a monster lawsuit over alleged gambling debts.

The San Jose Sharks star racked in as much as $9 million just last season, yet he finds himself in a situation where he is being accused of failing to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers given to him in April.

Via The Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas filed a lawsuit Monday in Clark County District Court alleging Kane failed to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers the casino extended to him in April.”

The court documents state that Kane, who is a Canadian citizen, took out eight credits of varying amounts between $20,000 and $100,000 on or about April 15. That date would have fallen between Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup first-round playoff series between the Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights.”

If you’re unaware, markers are special credits that allow gamblers to more easily receive access to large amounts of money on the spot.

The 28-year-old is in the second year of a seven-year, $49 million deal he inked with the Sharks.
