Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Peter Folco
Defenceman Peter Folco played two games with the Vancouver Canucks in 1973-74. He was a fine passer and playmaker who was particularly useful while playing the point on the power play.

The Montreal native played three years with the Verdun Maple Leafs and one season on the Quebec Rempart's blueline. After recording 47 assists in 55 games for Quebec in 1972-73, he was chosen 131st overall by the Vancouver Canucks. He played two games in the NHL during his rookie season but spent most of his time with the Seattle Totems of the WHL. He remained with the Totems when they switched over to the CHL in 1974-75.

In September 1975 he was signed as a free agent with the Toronto Toros of the World Hockey Association. Folco played 19 WHA games that year then recorded 59 points in 51 games for the Beauce Jaros of the NAHL. In 1976-77 he played a pair of contests for the Birmingham Bulls of the WHA (the transplanted Toronto Toros). Most of the year ended up being spent in the NAHL with Beauce then the Philadelphia Firebirds before he announced his retirement.
