Making The Cut

from the CP via Slam,
Jordan Little has been preparing for his big chance for months, working nights as a server at a Boston Pizza restaurant to help pay for the personal trainer who has been whipping him into shape. On Sunday, Little flies to Edmonton to step onto the ice with the Oilers - all because of a TV show. Little was one of more than 4,000 hopefuls who entered the Making The Cut television series. On Dec. 14, 2004, with 18 finalists remaining, the six Canadian NHL teams each awarded one player a training camp invitation. The six-foot-four, 240-pound University of Manitoba defenceman had so impressed Kevin Prendergast that the Oilers executive made him the No. 1 pick.
