Cuthbertson floated around the Demons for four years after debuting in the Under 19's during 1988 before finally making his first senior appearance.
He had joined the club from Epping, played Under 19's and returned to Epping before rejoining Melbourne where he won the the Under 19's best and fairest award. He starred in the 1990 reserves finals series with nine goals against Footscray in the second-semi final and earned himself another year on the senior list.
Brought into the senior side to add firepower up front after the Demons disasterous two goal Round 1 performance against the Eagles, Cuthbertson contributed two goals in each of his first two games before going goalless in the round 4 win over Carlton. Perhaps lucky to hold his place, he produced one of the most startling three weeks of the decade.
In Round 5, the 21-year-old lined up against North Melbourne at the MCG and booted seven goals in what still remains the equal highest score the Demons have ever kicked in a game. To prove it wasn't a fluke he kicked another seven the next Saturday at Waverley Park. Suddenly the talk of the footballing world, Cuthbertson had another five at the MCG the next week against Brisbane. He now had 23 goals in his first six games.
He kicked five goals in 11 games in 1992 and nine in five in 1993 before leaving the club. His best goalkicking feat in a Demon jumper had been booting 13 in a reserves final against Richmond, but despite his goalkicking feats in that game he was still delisted at the end of the year.
After training at Hawthorn in the 1994 pre-season but not being picked up, Cuthbertson returned to Epping and played there until the mid 2000's when he moved to Montmorency.
