In brief: It could

A fronto-temporal stroke can involve the broca's region if it is on the dominant side of the brain.
Most people's broca's (speech production center) is on the left. So a left fronto-temporal stroke can involve the broca's in the majority of people.

In brief: Perhaps

It depends which side and how extensive the stroke was.
It may affect broca's area in which case there would be some type of speech impairment.
