The Len Ceglarski Award is an annual award given out at the conclusion of the Hockey East regular season to the player most exemplifying the qualities of sportsmanship on the ice in the conference as voted by the head coaches of each Hockey East team.[2] The award was created and named in honor of long-time Boston College head coach Len Ceglarski who retired following the 1991–92 season.[3]

The Len Ceglarski Award was first bestowed in 1992 and every year thereafter.

Only Steve Kariya, Joe Gambardella, and Jacob Bryson have received the award more than once, Gambardella and Bryson winning in two consecutive years, and Kariya doing so in three consecutive years from 1996–97 to 1998–99.
