SAN JOSE — Evander Kane is reportedly being sued by a Las Vegas hotel for unpaid gambling markers he took out in April when the Sharks were in the city playing the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round of the NHL playoffs.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Tuesday that The Cosmopolitan Hotel filed a lawsuit in Clark County District Court on Monday, alleging that Kane has not paid back $500,000 in markers the casino extended to him this spring.

According to the Review-Journal, the court documents state that Kane was extended eight credits of amounts between $20,000 and $100,000 on or about April 15. The Sharks played the Golden Knights in Game 3 of that series on April 14 and Game 4 on April 16.

Per the Review-Journal, The Cosmopolitan, citing company policy, declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Per a team spokesman, the Sharks are aware of the suit but declined comment.

Kane, 28, was acquired by the Sharks from the Buffalo Sabres in February 2018. In 104 games with the Sharks, Kane has 47 goals and 35 assists.

Kane is in the second year of a seven-year, $49 million contract he signed with the Sharks in May 2018.

Entering Tuesday’s game with the Chicago Blackhawks, Kane led the Sharks with eight goals. He and Tomas Hertl each had 12 points, tied for second most on the team behind Brent Burns’ 14.
