AP - Sports

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane is being sued in British Columbia over an alleged assault in Vancouver last summer.

Vancouver resident Lev Makievsky says he was downtown and returning home from work Aug. 10, 2013, when he was assaulted by Kane. The player is from Vancouver.

Makievsky says he sustained a concussion and has ''permanent physical disability.'' He's seeking unspecified damages.

A statement of claim was filed on Makievsky's behalf last week. There is no statement of defense.

The Jets had no comment.
