Evander Kane Facing Civil Assault Lawsuit

from CBC,

Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane is being sued by a Vancouver man who claims he was assaulted last year, CBC News has confirmed.

In a notice of civil claim filed on March 28 with the B.C. Supreme Court, the man alleges that he was attacked by Kane while heading home from work on Aug. 10, 2013 near the corner of Burrard Street and Barclay Street in Vancouver.

The man claims he suffered a concussion and various injuries to the head, neck, shoulders, back, chest, ribs, left leg and heel as a result of the alleged incident.

The man is seeking unspecified damages as well as compensation for past and future health-care costs and legal costs.

Note, changed the headline from Charges to Lawsuit.  I don't claim to be a lawyer and was advised of the proper term.

Wow.  That story screams “sketchy”, every single bit of it.

So an NHL player just decided on a lark to assault a guy (presumably in broad daylight) on a lark?  Did Kane hit the milk bar first too, and meet with his droogs before-hand?

TIme to make the Jets a lowball offer.  This is a big fat nothing but the media up there will paint it as one more sign that Kane shouldn’t be part of the core of the Jets moving forward.
