Brad Cook

Scout, Western Canada

Brad has been coaching hockey of all levels for over 25 years throughout North America. Growing up in Detroit, Brad had the privilege of playing for and training with some of the top hockey minds in the industry. As a player Brad played in the OHL for the Detroit Jr Red Wings, and also won a Royal Bank Cup with the Vernon Vipers.

Following his Junior career, Brad moved on to play over 600 games of professional hockey, and since retiring from playing in 2006, Brad has worked as Head Coach/General Manager and assistant coach in the BCHL and the VIJHL. Brad has also been an integral part of developing young talent in Victoria, BC for the past 13 years as Head Hockey Instructor at the Spectrum High School Hockey Academy, and most recently Head Skills Coach / Associate Coach with BC High Performance Programs.

Brad’s experience as an Elite player, passion for giving back to the game, and being instrumental in moving numerous players on to the WHL, NCAA, and BCHL have given Brad the tools to identify elite talent in Western Canada, and to assist in the growth and development of KO Sports Clients to help them reach their highest potential.

Back to our Team

My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
