Ace Lengyel

Edward Geza "Ace" Lengyel

April 14, 1926
Bridgeport, CT

Died:
March 24, 1992
Branford, CT


Career

Eddie graduated from high school and went right into the U.S. Army. After the army he played for Bridgeport in the ABL, and graduated from the University of Bridgeport in 1951.

He worked for the city of Fairfield, Connecticut, as the Director of Risk Management and died in 1992.

(Note: The Hartford Courant from Feb 4, 1949, says it is Ed Lengyel. Why he played three pro games but was still in college is uncertain to me, but I do feel like I have correct Lengyel.)
