Andrei Markov can't catch a break. If it wasn't already frustrating enough that knee problems have caused him to miss most of the past three years, the Montreal Canadiens' defenceman also recently realized he'd been ripped off on an insurance policy sale.
Now he's suing. Markov filed a suit this week against insurance broker Erik Niskanen and Great West Life for being dishonest about a policy he was sold in 2007.
Really dishonest, according to the suit. Markov was led to believe his family would get money they wouldn't, that he could get back money he couldn't, and that Niskanen was even allowed to sell him insurance, which he wasn't. (Markov may as well have been buying a policy from Matt Niskanen.)
