Kenneth Leslie McAuley (January 9, 1921 – June 18, 1992) was a professional ice hockey Goaltender who played 96 games in the National Hockey League.

McAuley played for the New York Rangers, who experienced a shortage of players due to the World War II draft. After serving a year in the military, McAuley was signed by the Rangers and played two seasons with the club. With a record of 17–64–15 he was not re-signed following the war. The Rangers opted to rotate Charlie Rayner and Jim Henry in net.[1]

While playing in all but 20 minutes of the 1943-44 season, McAuley allowed 310 goals, setting a league record for worst goals against average (6.24) that has stood ever since.
