Forbes Taylor Kennedy (born August 18, 1935 in Dorchester, New Brunswick) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player. In 603 career NHL games Kennedy recorded 70 goals and 108 assists for 178 points and 988 penalty minutes.

Kennedy was a splendid example of what can be accomplished with moderate talent but an abundance of courage. Despite his small frame he was often the toughest and usually the grittiest player on the ice. As a result, he was a great fan favorite during the earliest days of the Philadelphia Flyers and was sorely missed after his trade in 1969.

Kennedy's last game was marked by a violent incident, as Pat Quinn delivered a massive hit to Bobby Orr knocking him unconscious. In the melee following it, Kennedy punched a linesmen resulting in a lengthy suspension. He never played a game in the NHL again.
