The Maly Volkhovets (Russian: Малый Волховец) is a right (eastern) armlet of the Volkhov River in Novgorodsky District of Novgorod Oblast in Russia. It splits from the Volkhov 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) below its outflow from the Lake Ilmen, bypasses the city of Veliky Novgorod (so that the eastern part of the city is situated on an island), and rejoins the Volkhov north of the Khutyn Monastery. It is 17 kilometres (11 mi) long. The Vishera River, one of the Volkhov's principal tributaries, is a tributary of the Maly Volkhovets.

The name of the armlet, which means "The Minor Volkhov", originates from the name of the Volkhov River.

The village of Volotovo with the Assumption Church in Volotovo is located on the right bank of Maly Volkhovets.
