San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane is being sued for an absurd amount of money after allegedly pressuring a woman to have multiple abortions.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit claims Kane promised to pay an unnamed woman he was having a secret relationship with $3 million if she got a third abortion after he got her pregnant again. She previously aborted two pregnancies, and allegedly accepted his offer to get a third.

However, he apparently decided he wasn’t going to pay up after the abortion. The woman is now suing for $6 million. (RELATED: NHL Player Scores Goal With One Second Left. The Video Is Incredible)

This is one of the wildest stories we’ve seen out of the NHL in a very long time. First off, how do you allegedly get your mistress pregnant three different times? One accident can be explained away. A second one starts to get suspicious and a third one is just plain blasphemy. The TMZ report doesn’t claim if there was anything put on paper or in text about the payment for an abortion, but the PR damage has already been done.

I’m a billion percent positive the Sharks aren’t too pleased with the fact this story is in the news, especially given the fact Kane has been aired out before for problems with women.

I have no idea how this is going to all end, but somebody needs to sit Kane down and tell him he needs to straighten out. He’s on a $49 million contract. That’s way too much money to be making and still end up in the headlines for stuff of this nature. Just not smart at all.
