Dave Rook joined the Columbus Blue Jackets as goaltending coach in June 2009. He joined the club after spending the previous three years as a goaltending consultant for the St. Louis Blues organization. In addition to his work with St. Louis' affiliates and goaltending prospects, he served as the goaltending coach for the Ontario Hockey League's London Knights from 2003-09.

During his tenure with the Knights, he worked with current Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason, who won the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year and earned Second Team NHL All-Star honors in 2008-09. In 2006-07, Mason was named the OHL Goaltender of the Year and a year later he was again one of the league's top players and earned Most Valuable Player and Top Goaltender honors helping Team Canada win the gold medal at the 2008 World Junior Championships.

He worked for the London Nationals Junior B team from 1996-2003 before joining the Knights prior to the 2003-04 season. The following season, London captured the 2005 Memorial Cup championship.
