Bio

Bill Cook Bio

Cook was already a star when he came to the NHL with the expansion New York Rangers as a 30-year-old in 1926. He became arguably the NHL's best right wing in the pre-World War II era, leading the League in goals and points in 1926-27 and 1932-33, helping the Rangers win the Stanley Cup twice and combining with Frank Boucher and Bun Cook, his younger brother, to form the "Bread Line," one of the most prolific lines in the early years of the NHL.

The native of Brantford, Ontario, didn't turn pro until he was 26, when he joined Saskatoon of the Western Canada Hockey League in 1922. He was a star by his second season, when he led the WCHL with 26 goals and 40 points. The WCHL renamed itself the Western Hockey League for the 1925-26 season and Cook again led the League with 31 goals and 44 points.
