San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane has 500,000 more reasons to dislike Las Vegas.

According to The Las Vegas Review-Journal, The Cosmopolitan has filed a lawsuit, saying Kane owes $500,000 in unpaid markers.

Kane, a Canadian citizen, has become public enemy No. 1 for the Golden Knights.

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

As first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the court documents state that Kane took out eight credits of varying amounts between $20,000 and $100,000 on or about April 15. The Knights were victorious in controversial fashion after seven games in the series.

Kane's casino visit occurred at the same time that the San Jose Sharks were in Las Vegas to play the Vegas Golden Knights, as part of the first round of the Stanley Cup play-off series.

The Cosmopolitan is also seeking repayment of legal fees.

$500K is certainly nothing to scoff at but it's not like Kane is strapped for cash - he is now in the second year of a 7-year, $49 million deal.

No comments were made on the allegations by Kane, the San Jose Sharks, or the National Hockey League to date. His rivalry with defenseman Ryan Reaves escalated during the preseason when the two went at each other during one of their matchups.

That lead to a suspension that saw the Sharks forward miss out on the first three games of the National Hockey League regular season.
