Michael's College School from — While at St. Michael's, he received instruction from Joe Primeau , who Mahovlich would later call the best coach he ever had. He joined the Leafs in and was a goal scorer in his first season, winning the Calder Memorial Trophy as rookie of the year in what was otherwise a rough season with the last-place Leafs, Punch Imlach was hired to run the Leafs and soon became head coach and general manager. The three immediately clicked and were the team's top three scorers that year, led by Mahovlich's 48 goals—a Leaf record that would stand for 21 years.
The following season, the Leafs won the Stanley Cup, and repeated as champions in and Mahovlich led the team in goals scored in all three seasons. Initially, Mahovlich and Imlach got along well, but their relationship deteriorated after a few seasons, particularly when Mahovlich's contract was up for renewal in He felt the Leafs gave him a low-ball offer and walked out on the team during training camp in September.
Red Burnett at the Toronto Star described the situation as a "cold war" between Imlach and Mahovlich. At that time, the National Hockey League All-Star Game was played at the beginning of the season, and during a reception in Toronto attended by team executives in the days before the game, Chicago Black Hawks owner James D. The next day, the Leafs gave Mahovlich the money he had been asking for, and told the Black Hawks that their apparent agreement the night before had been a misunderstanding.
The Black Hawks accused the Leafs of reneging on a deal. Conn Smythe , at this point a minority shareholder in the Leafs, was adamant that the deal should be rejected. Mahovlich also had a rocky relationship with fans at Maple Leaf Gardens and was often booed at home games.
Imlach—who mispronounced Mahovlich's name for years—became a constant critic and, under pressure from fans and management, Mahovlich was admitted to Toronto General Hospital in November , suffering from what was publicly described as "constant fatigue" but diagnosed as acute Clinical depression.
