Defenseman Bill Folk suited up for 12 games with the Detroit Red Wings in the early 1950s. His career lasted two decades and was chiefly based in the WHL and the Saskatchewan amateur hockey system.

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Folk played junior with the local Abbotts and Caps. In 1947-48 he turned pro with the Boston Olympics of the EHL then joined the USHL's Omaha Knights. The Red Wings brought him up to the Indianapolis Capitals of the AHL for a year and called him up for four games in 1951-52. The next season he played eight games in Motown and was assigned to the Edmonton Flyers of the WHL where he helped win a league championship in 1953.

Folk skated a couple seasons for the AHL's Providence Reds then settled down in the WHL during the mid-'50s. He was a part of a second WHL championship with the Vancouver Canucks in 1958. After starting the 1961-62 season with the Spokane Comets, Folk retired. After two seasons away from the game, he played a pair of seasons with the Regina Capitals of the Saskatchewan senior loop before calling it quits for good in 1966.
