Blake Wheeler, former captain of the Winnipeg Jets, played with the most unimaginable injury during a December 15th victory against the Nashville Predators.

Wheeler briefly left the game in the second period, and returned in the third.

He reportedly suffered a ruptured Testicle, which is known to cause extreme pain. Surgery is required to fix the rupture.
