Victor Bartley first player of Asian descent to play for the Habs?

I’m pretty sure my title does not need a question mark at the end but you never know. As far as I can tell Victor Bartley is the first player who has some Asian ethnicity in him to play for the Montreal Canadiens. His mother is from Taiwan and he is originally born in Ottawa, he was obtained by the Canadiens in a bizarrely timed three way trade that also involved John Scott. There was a nice article about him posted on the Canadiens’ website. He recently played his first game against Washington on Wednesday.
