Larry Goodenough (born January 19, 1953 in Toronto, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player. He played in 242 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks. He won the Stanley Cup in 1975 with Philadelphia.

He was chosen 20th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1973 after scoring 66 points for the OHA's London Knights. After nearly two full years with the Richmond Robins of the American Hockey League, he joined the Flyers for the last 20 games of the 1974-75 season and dressed for five playoff matches as the Flyers won their second straight Stanley Cup.

During the 1975-76 season, Goodenough registered 42 points then enjoyed a fine post-season when the Flyers reached the finals. In January, 1977 he was the key to a deal which brought defenceman Bob Dailey from the Vancouver Canucks. Goodenough's offensive totals dropped and his plus/minus rating suffered on the relatively weak Canucks. He was relegated to the minors in 1979-80 then the next year was named the top defenceman in the IHL and a first-team all-star.

Goodenough retired in 1983 after playing 58 games for the AHL's Binghamton Whalers.
