Vodnik (Russian: Водник) is a bandy club from Arkhangelsk in Russia. Vodnik was founded in 1925 and in the mid-1990s it became a major team in both Russian and international bandy. During the existence of the USSR the club was a part of the VSS Vodnik.

Vodnik became Russian champions in 1996 to begin a run of nine national championships in ten seasons, missing out only in season 2000–01 when Yenisey won after scoring the winning goal against them in the last minute.
