Sundin was a quick healer. I remember a knee injury that should have been a 4 week recoup, he was back in 2.

He was cleared to play two days after the Habs defeat in the playoffs. Had we beat the Bruins, he could have joined the team for the next round.

This is definitely one of the most cringe worthy injuries I've heard of...

Quote:
On the afternoon of May 24, as his Red Wings teammates took the ice in Chicago for Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, captain Nicklas Lidstrom wondered about the future of his testicles. He had woken up that morning, like every other morning of his life, with two. He was worried he would go to bed that night with one.

"When I first saw the doctor in the morning, he asked me if I had any kids, and if I planned on having more kids," said Lidstrom, 39, who has four sons.

Two days earlier, the Blackhawks' Patrick Sharp had speared Lidstrom in his testicles. Lidstrom practiced the next day, which says something about the man; you don't have to be Allen Iverson to think speared testicles are a good reason to skip practice.

But when Lidstrom woke up on the 24th, he was in too much pain to play. He needed surgery immediately. Now here was this doctor, telling Lidstrom he might emerge from anesthesia with one testicle.

"He said he didn't know until he actually went in there and looked," Lidstrom said.

When Lidstrom woke up, the doctors quickly told him surgery had been successful, and everything was right where he'd left it.

So in short, I was right. He was done for the season, with a double helping hand from the Bruins.

Healing quickly is impressive, but not as good as playing injured. For example: Jack Youngblood.



One of the athletic feats for which Youngblood is best known, is that of playing the entire 1979 playoffs, including Super Bowl XIV, with a fractured left fibula.[23] He also played in the 1980 Pro Bowl with the injured leg, a week after the Super Bowl.[24] In the playoffs, Youngblood sacked Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach near the sideline in the waning moments of the divisional playoff game versus the Cowboys.[25] Playing with the fractured leg was noted by Sports Illustrated in their Top 10 list of athletes playing in pain.[26] For that and other achievements Jack was dubbed the “John Wayne of football” by Jim Hanifan and echoed by Hall of Fame coach John Madden.[27] The NFL Network series NFL Top 10 selected Youngblood's performance in the 1979 playoffs as top on its list of the “Gutsiest Performances″ of all-time.[28]

For the 1979 season Youngblood had a career-high 18 sacks[29] and was a consensus First-team All-pro for the fifth time. He was voted to his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl. In 1980 he was Second-team All-pro and First-team All-NFC while leading the Rams with 11½ sacks. In 1981 Jack led the Rams with 12½ sacks and was the Rams outstanding defensive lineman. In the off-season, prior to the 1981 season, Jack had emergency surgery to remove a hot-dog sized blood clot from under his left arm. It was a result of repeated trauma to a nerve in his arm that blocked the flow of blood.[30] Despite the broken leg and numerous other injuries, Youngblood played in 201 consecutive games, a Rams team record; and only missed 1 game in his 14-year NFL career. He played in seven straight Pro Bowls, 5 NFC Championships, and one Super Bowl. He was also the Rams defensive captain from 1977 through 1984 and was voted the Dan Reeves award 3 times, which is awarded to the team's MVP. He had 151½ career sacks and led the Rams in sacks nine times despite playing first in assistant Coach Ray Malavasi's stop-the-run-first defensive scheme and then in his final two seasons in Defensive Coordinator Fritz Shurmur's 3-4 two-gap scheme[31] which limited some pass rush opportunities to make sure the opponent's running game was handled.

Sweet man, interesting read !

Thanks for posting it.

Not unheard of in hockey of course, but was always impressed when Keith lost 7 teeth blocking a puck, and finished the game with the most TOI.

Happy Gilmore was run over by a VW Beetle while on the course. He ended up finishing the round and winning, but only because he learned how to putt.

When Callahan broke his ankle blocking a Chara slapshot that's pretty much the moment where he took the C.

I suspected it from the other thread: you're trying to out-Marchand Marchand.

And I guess you're proud of yourself.

You'll grow up, hopefully.

The majority of NHLers not made of glass play through ridiculous injuries, and "heal" faster than normal people.

Didn't Michael Jordan win a playoff game while playing with a high fever?

Are people really blaming Pacioretty for being "injury prone"? After suffering that Chara check and having to had his appendice removed? People are surpassing themselves by the minute....

Habs fans should know better.....just don't start threads in this board.
