Niclas Hävelid (born April 12, 1973 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for Linköpings HC of the Swedish Elitserien. While born in Stockholm, he was raised in Enköping, roughly 78 km west of his birthplace.

Hävelid began his hockey career playing locally around his home of Enköping in Division 1 of the SIHA. After two seasons with the Enköpings he played with the Arlanda Wings for the 1990–1991 season. The following year, he moved to AIK, a team based in Stockholm.

He continued with AIK until the 1998–99 season when he went to the Malmö Redhawks. Hävelid was drafted 83rd overall by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. In 1999, he played in his first North American season, notching nine points (two goals, seven assists) in 50 games with Anaheim, making his NHL debut at Dallas on October 2, 1999. A month later, he recorded his first goal, assist and multiple-point game in the NHL in one night against the Blackhawks and goaltender Jocelyn Thibault on November 19th. In December, he would continue to post four (one goal, three assists) out of nine points for the season in a nine game span from December 12–29, 1999. The new year would not begin as well. With a broken finger, Hävelid would miss 22 games, from January 15–March 8, 2000. His lone two game minor league stint for post injury conditioning would be with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. He was scoreless in both games.
