Trustee in Evander Kane bankruptcy seeks to stop funding ex-NHL star’s defamation claim

Jan 23, 2022

Per Daniel Kaplan: The trustee overseeing embattled former San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy wants to pull the plug on funding his defamation countersuit against a woman who is suing him for assault.

Rachel Kuechle sued Kane over an alleged 2015 incident in Buffalo, and the hockey player countersued. Kane filed for bankruptcy protection in 2021, leaving the funding of his countersuit up to the discretion of the trustee.
