Alexander Leone Lally "Bud" Cook (November 15, 1907 in Kingston, Ontario – November 13, 1993) was a professional ice hockey Centreman who played three seasons in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins (1931–32), Ottawa Senators (1933–34), and St. Louis Eagles (1934–35). In 51 total NHL games, he scored 5 goals and 9 points.

He played junior hockey for the Saskatoon Wesleys and then turned pro in 1928-29 for the Oakland Sheiks. The Shieks sold his rights to the Montreal Canadiens in 1930 but he never played for Montreal. The Boston Bruins bought his rights in 1931.

After playing for three different NHL teams from 1931 to 1935, Cook ended up with the Cleveland Falcons. He played for the Falcons and their successor Barons from 1935 to 1944. After spending a year in the Canadian miltary in 1944-45, Cook ended his playing career with a season and a half with the Oakland Oaks, retiring from play in 1947.

He finished off the 1946-47 season as coach of the Quebec Aces and then coached the Dallas Texans in 1947-48.

He was the brother of Bill and Bun Cook.
