Quebecers like Mike Bossy, Gump Worsley, Scott Mellanby, Roberto luongo, Mike Ribeiro are not French-Canadians.
If we are talking about ethnicity/mother tongue, technically they aren't French Canadians just like Joe Sakic, Nazem Kadri and many more aren't Anglo Canadians.

However, in a practical manner, I would consider Ribeiro and Luongo as Francophones because they speak French perfectly and it's probably the language they are most comfortable with.
