(CP) - George (Punch) Imlach, general manager of Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League, has denied published charges he made his players perform when they were hurting when he coached Toronto Maple Leafs. The accusation was made by Leaf winger Paul Henderson in his recently-released book The Fans Go Wild on which he collaborated with freelance writer John Gault. "It was just the opposite to what he says,' said Imlach on his Sunday night television show, beamed from a Buffalo station that reaches the Toronto area. "We have fined players who didn't report injuries." Imlach said the policy of the Leafs when he coached them and the Sabres is the same and that "a player who is injured reports to the trainer and doctor and doesn't play until he gets their okay." He said it was not unusual to coax some players who had been Injured into the lineup and that some players needed prodding but no coercion was used. Imlach said playoffs were different than league games in that most players, including the injured, wanted to play.
