Less than two years ago, San Jose Sharks star winger Evander Kane was settling down in San Jose’s charming Willow Glen neighborhood with his wife Anna and their new daughter, Kensington.
Now the marriage is ending in divorce, with Anna claiming on social media that her soon-to-be-ex-husband was betting on NHL games and even losing on purpose for financial gain. Kane has denied the accusations and the NHL is currently looking into the claims.
Even though Kane is only three seasons into his seven-year, nearly $50-million contract with the Sharks, he filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in January, claiming he owes $26.8 million to his debtors. That includes $1.5 million in gambling debts from just the previous year alone. Kane’s five-bedroom, 4.5-bath home, which he still co-owns with his estranged wife, is being sold off as part of these bankruptcy proceedings, Radar reported.
The gossip site also says that paperwork shows the trustee found a buyer who is willing to pay $3.4 million for the 3,700 square-foot-property, which the Kanes bought for just over $3 million in 2020. Yet the home is currently on the market, with an asking price of $3,199,950, according to Realtor.com.
The real estate listing site also says that the Kanes were the first owners of the farmhouse-style home. It is a spec house completed in 2020 that replaced the small bungalow originally on the property, which was torn down when it was bought by developers in 2018 for $1.3 million.
The new home has an open floorplan with high ceilings on the main level, and features a glass-enclosed wine storage area in the entry and a wine fridge in the gourmet kitchen. There is also an oversized two-car garage with a workshop and the home itself sits on a quarter-acre with a patio and a grassy backyard.
