Never heard that one, and it sounds vaguely like the cover story for the time Dunc Wilson broke his hand while drunk - the Leafs spread a rumor that it had actually occurred when he got into a fight with Tiger, his road roommate, and punched him in the jaw, hard enough to break his hand. Doesn't seem to be much of a PR improvement to me, but I guess at the time brawling with teammates was less of a negative than drinking too much.
