Hailing from Belgrade, Yugoslavia, left-winger Stanley Smrke became the first Yugoslavian to ever play in the NHL during the 1956-57 season when he joined the Canadiens for four game, recording no points. On Oct. 5, 1957, he took part in the All-Star Game with the Habs as they face a team composed of the league’s top players, during which he would score his only career NHL goal. He would play his last five games in the league with the Canadiens over the course of that season, recording three assists. He was traded to Toronto on Jun. 7, 1960, in exchange for Al MacNeil.
