Evander Kane 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
On July 1, 2016, Kane was sued by a 21-year-old woman who accused him of assaulting her in the hotel room where he lived.
According to court documents, the woman alleged that Kane “met her in a bar, invited her to what he said was a party and then attacked her, causing cuts and bleeding that required multiple surgeries.”
On August 1, 2016, Kane pleaded not guilty to one count of criminal trespassing and four counts of non-criminal harassment after confrontations with four separate people at a downtown Buffalo bar in June 2016.
At that time, Kane was a member of the Buffalo Sabres.
According to a police report, Kane became involved in a fight with a bouncer at a bar called Bottoms Up, after allegedly grabbing an unnamed woman by the throat and attempting to force her into a car outside the nightclub.
A second police report alleged that, in a separate incident, Kane grabbed a woman by the arms inside the nightclub and attempted to force her outside.
Kane surrendered to Buffalo police in late July 2016. Said Sabres GM Tim Murray of the incident, “Whether he has done these things or not, or he’s guilty of these things or not, it’s not something I like getting up in the morning and reading about, that’s for sure.”
The incident came after another incident in February, in which Kane was suspended by the team for missing a practice after attending the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto.
GM Murray noted that Kane’s off-ice behaviour has been very negative for both the player and the Sabres’ organization.
The Bottoms Up case was later adjourned and dismissed. Referred to as an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal, a case can be adjourned for more than six months and after a set period of time, the charges are dismissed if the defendant can display and maintain good behavior.
On March 14, 2019, Kane announced that his wife Anna had a miscarriage at 26 weeks, a daughter they named Eva.
On November 4, 2019, Kane was sued by The Cosmopolitan casino in Las Vegas after he walked out on a half-million-dollar gambling debt.
The suit alleged that Kane had received $500,000 in gambling markers from the casino in April while the Sharks were in Las Vegas for a playoff series against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Such markers are essentially lines of credit which allow casino guests to continue gambling, and those extended to Kane were dispursed in eight separate installments, ranging in value from $20,000 to $100,000.
The suit claims that Kane left the casino without making arrangements to settle the debt.
The casino sought full restitution plus repayment of legal fees associated with the lawsuit.
On June 8, 2020, Kane co-founded the Hockey Diversity Alliance, alongside former player Akim Aliu, to address intolerance and racism in hockey.
On July 3, 2020, Kane became a father with the birth of his daughter, Kensington.
On January 11, 2021, Kane reportedly filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in California after amassing $26.8 million of debt.
Is an impressive skater and physical intimidator.
Has goal-scoring instincts and ability, and he never backs down from confrontations.
Is extremely confident in his overall game.
Lacks the high-end vision needed to be a great playmaker at the NHL level, so he’s best served going hard to the net regularly.
Is a high-maintenance player who lacks maturity.
