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.
Perhaps, but a collarbone is, well, a bone. You can't play with a broken bone such as important as the collarbone. Some players will finish a game with a broken foot, but as soon as they take that foot out of the skate, it's over.
Players might finish a shift with a broken arm or hand, but once they get back to the bench and get it checked, they're gone.
Heck, fighters will go through a fight to the end even if they break their hand (break a leg and they quit though), but once the fight is over, they take months off to recuperate.

A hockey player cannot play with a broken collarbone, it's impossible. Do you understand that you can't even lift your arm when it's broken???..It's as if you're telling me you can play with a broken leg.
You simply can't.
