Prior to the season, his rights were purchased by the Ottawa Senators and he was offered a CAN $5,000 yearly salary to join the team. The New York Rangers, although not owning his rights, also offered him a three-year contract for an annual salary of $8,000 and a $3,000 signing bonus. Understanding that Cook would never join Ottawa, his rights were reluctantly sent back to Saskatoon, the Rangers purchased his right and he signed the contract.
