The Kingston Nylons were a Senior B team in Kingston, Ontario that played from 1948 to 1951 in the Eastern Group of the Ontario Hockey Association. They replaced the Kingston Saints.

They were sponsored by the DuPont Company which had a plant in Kingston. They were the inventors of nylon.

They won the group in 1948-49 but lost the provincial quarter final. In 1949-50 they lost the group final.

In 1950-51 they finished in second place in the group. They then played a playoff series against the Peterborough Petes (senior) who finished in first place. The winner would go on to the provincial Senior A playoffs; the loser would play in the Senior B playoffs.

The Nylons threw the series to the Petes in order to get more playoff series and therefore more revenue. The Petes lost their next series; the Nylons played two more and could have gone farther.

This was uncovered in the following season. The Nylons and many of their players were suspended.

The team was replaced by the Kingston Goodyears.
