Cupido appeared in only one game for Colorado in the 2012 season, but broke through in 2013 playing in all but the first regular season game and was named to the NLL All-Rookie team, leading the Mammoth and all NLL rookies with 101 loose balls. Cupido was named co-winner of the Most Valuable Defensive player in the MSL in 2014 for his play with the Kodiaks. He led the NLL in caused turnovers in 2015 and was the unanimous winner of the Transition Player of the Year award as voted by NLL writers. The NLL announced at their award ceremony in September 2015 that Cupido was the winner of the National Lacrosse League Transition Player of the Year Award and a first team NLL All-Pro. He was a member of Team Canada for the Heritage Cup in October 2017, scoring one goal in Canada's 19 to 6 victory over Team U.S.A. He led all defenders with 16 goals and tied for the NLL lead in short handed goals in 2018 and was once again named the Transition Player of the Year as voted by NLL writers, and the NLL Transition Player of the Year as awarded by the league. He was also named a first team NLL All-Pro for the 2017-2018 season.
