That’s not the way to start the season.

Centennial Bank sued Evander Kane and the San Jose Sharks on Thursday in Florida federal court, claiming Kane owes them more than $8.3 million in principal and interest.

According to Centennial, Kane received an initial $3.9 million loan from the Arkansas-based bank for business and investment opportunities in September 2018. The loan was secured by his Sharks contract, a seven-year, $49 million dollar pact inked that May.

Additional loans were secured against Kane’s contract over time.

Per the complaint, the San Jose Sharks were contractually obligated to pay the bank back directly from Kane’s wages. However, Centennial says they stopped receiving direct deposits from the team in October 2019. In addition, Kane allegedly defaulted on the loan by missing a December 2019 payment and has made no payments since.

“Centennial believes and therefore avers that the borrower has directed the team to discontinue any and all future direct deposits of the pledged payments into the designated account,” the complaint reads, “in violation of the security agreements.”

As of December 11, 2020, Kane owed $7.8 million in outstanding principal, about $503,000 in interest, and about $90,000 in bank fees.

Centennial is pursuing a declaratory judgment that obligates the San Jose organization to continue direct deposits until the loan is paid in full and prohibits Kane from interfering with these payments.

The San Jose Sharks have declined to comment.

Oh boy, I love Kane as a player but it’s frustrating to see all the off ice issues and distractions.

Damn it Evander…

That’s a big chunk of change!

Frustrating. Kane’s had two awful playoffs in San Jose. Signing him likely led to the Sharks not having their first-rounder in 2020. Plus, his shenanigans contributed to the poor start.

Man this is not a good look. He had some stupid shit he did early on as a younger guy and you want to give people second chances but he seems to make stupid choices over and over and over.
