Lenny Ceglarski was from East Walpole, Massachusetts, and played his college hockey at Boston College where he was also an outstanding baseball player. He played for the 1952 U.S. Olympic team in his only international appearance. Ceglarski never played professional hockey but after the Olympics became a successful college hockey coach. He coached at Clarkson between 1958 and 1970, leading the team to three national championship games in 1962, 1966 and 1970 although they were defeated each time. In 1970 he returned to his alma mater and coached the Boston College Eagles until his retirement in 1992. During his time at BC, Ceglarski led his teams to eight NCAA Frozen Fours, four NCAA title games, six Hockey East regular season championships (in eight years) and two Hockey East Tournament titles.

Three times a winner of the Spencer Penrose Trophy as college coach of the year, Ceglarski finished his career with a NCAA record 673 wins, although this record has since been bettered. Ceglarski was inducted into the US Hockey Hall of Fame (1992) and received the 1996 Legend of College Hockey award. He received the Lester Patrick Trophy in 1991.
