Winnipeg Jets’ forward and East Vancouver’s very own Evander Kane is being sued in British Columbia over an alleged assault that took place 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.

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.”

Makievsky is seeking unspecified damages.

The statement of claim was filed only last Friday and there is no statement of defence.

The Winnipeg Jets said they would have no comment on the statement of claim and Makievsky’s claims have not been proven in court.
