Chris Cuthbert's Professional Career

Cuthbert joined CBC Sports in 1984 and anchored regional western games for Hockey Night in Canada, usually from Edmonton. He further got spot play-by-play work and got his big break during the 1988 Stanley Cup playoffs.

On April 18, he was a reporter in Washington and was providing brief and periodic reports of the Washington Capitals–New Jersey Devils game to the national CBC viewing audience watching the Canadian network's game broadcast from Montreal.

A power outage struck the Montreal area and ended the telecast from that city. After that, CBC was forced to turn to Cuthbert in Washington to provide the full broadcast – play-by-play, analyst, and host. The broadcast was fully done off the cuff as besides no regular analysts, there were no graphics or replay capabilities.

His effort caught the network's attention and earned him a nomination for a Gemini Award. This very incident launched a successful broadcasting career.
