Theodore Samuel "Teeder" Kennedy (born December 12, 1925) in Port Colborne, Ontario is a retired professional centre.

Kennedy was originally the property of the Montreal Canadiens, but was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1943 for Frank Eddolls before he had played an NHL game. This move cost Toronto General Manager Frank Selke his job, as Eddolls was a favourite of Toronto owner Conn Smythe. Nevertheless the trade was a great one for the Leafs.
