Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane has been slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly assaulting a man in Vancouver last summer.
VANCOUVER – Winnipeg Jets' forward Evander Kane is being sued in British Columbia over an alleged assault in Vancouver last summer.
A statement of claim filed on behalf of Vancouver resident Lev Makievsky says he was returning home from work Aug. 10, 2013, in the downtown area when he was assaulted by Kane, who is from Vancouver.
It gives no further details of the alleged incident but lists a long series of injuries Makievsky says he incurred, including a concussion, and claims he has "permanent physical disability."
He's seeking unspecified damages.
The statement of claim was filed only last Friday and there is no statement of defense.
The Winnipeg Jets said they would have no comment on the statement of claim and Makievsky's claims have not been proven in court.
