In the National Hockey League there is almost an expectation that players will play through bumps and bruises in an effort to achieve their goal of winning a Stanley Cup at the end of the season, but some players truly take that to the extreme.

On Sunday, we learned of one such example when Carolina Hurricanes forward Seth Jarvis spoke to members of the media following the end of the Hurricanes season, and it was there that Jarvis would detail some of the truly significant injuries he has dealt with all season long.

Jarvis would inform reporters that, for the majority of the season, he was playing with both a torn labrum and rotator cuff, something that would seriously impede any professional athlete. In spite of that, Jarvis had what was inarguably the best season of his NHL career with 33 goals and 34 assists for a total of 67 points over 81 regular season games.

Unfortunately that wasn't all of it.

Jarvis would also inform reporters that he suffered a significant injury during the course of the Stanley Cup playoffs when he revealed he was playing through a broken finger. Amazingly, Jarvis still managed 5 goals and 4 assists for a total of 9 points over his 11 playoff games this season.

When asked why he would put himself through that? Jarvis gave the kind of answer typical of a hockey player in this situation.

"I'll do whatever I need to to get out there," said Jarvis. "I didn't want to miss an opportunity with this kind of group."
