His lawyer, Jean-Pierre Rancourt, reserved the option of a jury trial during a brief court appearance. Rancourt entered the plea for the 56-year-old Lafleur, who was not present.
Lafleur's son, Mark, is in jail facing more than 20 charges, including sexual assault of a minor and uttering threats.
The former Montreal Canadien player initially said at a bail hearing that his son respected a court-ordered curfew while staying with his parents. But he later admitted driving his son to hotels so he could spend the night with his 16-year-old girlfriend.
Rancourt said he will return to court March 5 to have a date set for the preliminary hearing.
