Lloyd Trembley Cook - Born March 21, 1890 in Lynden, Ontario – Died October 9, 1964 in Taber, Alberta was a Canadian professional ice Hockey defenceman.

Cook grew up playing Hockey in the Hamilton area of Ontario, and moved with his family to Taber, Alberta as a teenager, to become cattle ranchers.

Cook then continued his Hockey with the Taber Chiefs of the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association, and then joined the Edmonton Dominions of the Edmonton City League, where he helped the team win the 1913-14 Alberta Senior Hockey Championship. The Dominions played their Hockey at the Thistle Rink, and then the new Edmonton Gardens.

Cook joined the Vancouver Millionaires for the 1914–15 season, and had 17 points in 17 regular season games. In the 1915 Stanley Cup Finals, he scored three goals in three games to help Vancouver win the Stanley Cup championship. The following season, Cook scored 18 goals in 18 games.

Cook then played for the PCHA Spokane Canaries in 1916-17, where he was teammates with his younger brother, Leo.

In 1917–18, Cook returned to Vancouver, where he would play until 1924. He managed the team in 1919–20, and that season, he had 14 points in 21 games and was named to the PCHA first all-star team.
