I'd have to say Big Z getting his jaw blown apart by a clapper and then making the starting line up the next game.
Edit: for most the players suggested, the play in question is the first thing that comes up when you search them. That's pretty badass that there are this many guys in the league that have done something so tough that it's what they're known for.

Marleau is at 1723GP, Howe's record is 1767GP, Marleau is 40.
Also when looking it up to make sure I had the numbers right I was reminded that Marleau is actually on Pittsburgh right now which I had completely forgotten.

Another Hall of Fame debate? Alfie was an elite 2-way winger for 18 seasons playing for Ottawa and Detroit. He played half of his career in the dead puck era and didnt join the NHL until he was 23 years old.
|Regular season|1157 pts (54th)|1246 GP (93rd)|
|Era Adj. ranks|1261 pts (33rd)||
* From 35-40 years old Alfie put up 400 points in 463 games, he aged like fine wine & was still a huge part of his teams core until his final game
* Calder trophy winner, Olympic gold medalist, King Clancy Award, Mark Messier award
