I had to maneuver my way just to put a t-shirt on, so I can't see how he played through a broken collarbone, taking shots, stickhandling, checking and getting hits. Simply not possibly unless it was a minor fracture. If it was, then really not that big of deal. A bunch of players play through minor injuries.
A minor bone fracture is still a fracture and inhibits everything a player can do at times, stickhandling and shooting are very precise activities and little things throw them off. Vincent Lecavalier's had multiple surgeries on his shoulders now, his goal scoring touch has been badly impacted because of it.

Yzerman played while grinding his ligaments on one knee in the Olympics and 2002 Playoffs. Some people will play through pain we can't even comprehend.
