Tyler Kennedy (born July 15, 1986 in Sault Ste. Marie, ON) is a professional ice hockey player for the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League.

Playing career

Kennedy was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 4th round, 99th overall of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. After being drafted, Kennedy played two seasons with Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL. He began playing for the AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in 2006-07. He played his first game in the NHL on October 27, 2007, in a match versus the Montreal Canadiens. He scored his first NHL goal on November 3, 2007 against the New York Islanders. Kennedy is most commonly known among Penguin fans for his energy on the ice, making hits and going hard along the boards. He is also known for scoring at sharp and inopportune angles. His mentor was Gary Roberts.

Kennedy was named to the NHL's YoungStars Team in 2008 along with fellow teammate, Kris Letang. Kennedy was unable to compete in the game because of mononucleosis. In September 2008, the Penguins signed a contract with Kennedy through the 2010–11 season.

In the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals, Kennedy had a goal in Game 4, and a goal (which proved to be the game-winner) and an assist in Game 6. The Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 to win the Stanley Cup.
