The younger brother of former Ranger Bill Cook and older brother of former NHL player Bud Cook, Bun Cook played left wing on a high-scoring line with his brother Bill and Frank Boucher. The trio worked together as the Rangers` No. 1 line from the team`s inaugural season of 1926-27 to the early 1930s, finishing as the team`s top three individual scorers in each of the first five seasons.
Bun Cook began his pro hockey career in the Western Hockey League, where he was among the players scouted by Conn Smythe, the Rangers` first general manager. In 1926, Smythe recruited Bill and Bun Cook New York to be part of the original New York Rangers team.
Bun Cook spent 10 seasons with the Rangers before joining the Boston Bruins organization to close out his NHL career. He later became a highly successful coach in the American Hockey League, first with Providence and later with Cleveland, where he led the Barons to four Calder Cup championships between 1945 and 1954.
Cook was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame posthumously in 1995.
