Ken Strong (born May 9, 1963 in Toronto, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player. He played 15 games in the NHL with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

He played junior hockey for the Peterborough Petes from 1981 to 1983 and was chosen 58th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. The Flyers sent him to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1982 as part of the Darryl Sittler trade.

Strong managed to get into 15 games with the Leafs (scoring 2 goals and 2 assists) but mainly played in their farm system. In 1986 he went to Austria to play for EHC Chur and then EC Villacher SV. He got Austrian citizenship and played for his new country at the 1992 and 1995 World Championships and the 1994 Olympics.
