A native of Philadelphia Lew fell in love with the game of hockey in the late 1960's when the expansion Philadelphia Flyers came to the City of Brotherly Love. For the past five decades he has been involved in playing, coaching, scouting, and the development of players, both domestically and on the international stage. Lew spent parts of two seasons as a European professional in Germany from 1986-1988. He spent five seasons coaching collegially at three institutions Rensselaer, Colgate (1990 NCAA Finalist) and Princeton. Lew made the transition from coaching to scouting in 1994 as he entered the National Hockey League with the Quebec Nordiques, as he oversaw US amateur hockey for the organization. Mongelluzzo has dedicated over thirty years of service to USA HOCKEY as a volunteer, consultant, and scout. In 1996 he was a consultant and advisor for the National Team Development Program. He was Director of Player of Personnel for USA HOCKEY's National Junior Team from 2002 to 2006. He was part of the architecture that brought the US National Junior Team its first IIHF World Championship and Gold Medal in 2004 in Helsinki Finland. Lew has been involved with many great players over the years. He coached and played a role in the development of Mike Richter in Junior hockey. He has championed and was instrumental in the drafting of such players as Chris Drury a Calder trophy winner. Then again with Tim Thomas who was a Jennings, Conn Smythe, and Vezina trophy winner. Drury, Richter, and Thomas all are Stanley Cup Champions and U.S. Hockey Hall of fame inductees. When the opportunity came up to work alongside Ed Snider in 1978 with "HOCKEY CENTRAL" Lew did not hesitate. This "grassroots" program gave local kids a firsthand look and an introduction to what the game was all about. Lew is the brainchild and architect of the Liberty Bell Games formed in 2009. It is the Premier Hockey Showcase in the Mid-Atlantic region for 14-17 year olds. It gives them maximum exposure, teaches them to work with their peers, promotes education and gives them an opportunity to be viewed nationally. As a member of the Ottawa Senators Organization from 1999-2017 the Senators appeared in the post season 13 times in 17 seasons. The Ottawa Senators played in the 2007 National Hockey League Stanley Cup Finals and the Binghamton Senators (Ottawa Senators affiliate) in 2011 won the American Hockey League Calder Cup Championship. Lew is presently employed with the New Jersey Devils.
