Kenneth Lyle "Chub" Houston (born September 15, 1953) is a retired Canadian ice hockey player.

Originally drafted by the Atlanta Flames in the 1973 NHL Entry Draft, Houston played seven seasons for the franchise, including two after the team relocated to Calgary. He was traded along with Pat Riggin to the Washington Capitals following the 1981–82 NHL season.

Houston played for the Capitals until October 1983 when he was dealt along with Brian Engblom to the Los Angeles Kings in the trade that sent Larry Murphy to the Capitals. He retired at the end of the 1983–84 NHL season.
