A casino in the United States is suing Eugene Melnyk, claiming the Ottawa Senators owner has failed to pay $900,000 in owings.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, which runs the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut, filed a claim in New London Superior Court earlier this summer alleging that Melnyk attempted to pay the casino with a series of bank drafts in March 2017, but that the orders were “subsequently dishonoured” by TD Bank.

The casino is seeking damages, plus costs and interest, against Melnyk.

Melnyk’s lawyer did not return requests for comment on the lawsuit.
