Making the Cut: Last Man Standing

Making the Cut was a Canadian reality series that followed a group of amateur Ice Hockey players through a rigorous training session.

The first season was broadcast on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 2004. In 2006, the second season was moved to Global TV where its name was expanded to Making the Cut: Last Man Standing.

Season 1

In the first season, 68 players participated in a grueling two-week training camp in Vernon, British Columbia to compete for one of six invitations to an NHL training camp, one for each Canadian team.

The winners of that season were as followed:

Player Hometown NHL Team

Jordan Little Winnipeg, Manitoba Edmonton Oilers
James Demone St. Albert, Alberta Vancouver Canucks
Michael Mole Moncton, New Brunswick Ottawa Senators
Matt Hubbauer Winnipeg, Manitoba Calgary Flames
Kevin Lavallée Montreal, Quebec Montreal Canadiens
Dominic Noël Lamèque, New Brunswick Toronto Maple Leafs

Season 2

In the second season, one winner received a $250,000 endorsement contract and representation from a top NHL agent.

Franklin MacDonald of Nova Scotia was the winner of that season, and earned a contract with the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League. As of 2007, he was playing in the Panthers minor league system.

David Brine became the first contestant from the series to make the NHL when he made his debut with the Panthers on February 2, 2008 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
