Alexei Sergeyevich Vasiliev (Васильев, Алексей Сергеевич ; born September 1, 1977) is a Russian professional ice hockey defenseman who plays for Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the Kontinental Hockey League. He played in one National Hockey League game for the New York Rangers during the 1999–2000 NHL season, going scoreless and receiving 2 penalty minutes in a contest against the Montreal Canadiens.

Vasiliev also spent 12 seasons playing for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in the Russian Superleague & Kontinental Hockey League. His contract was not renewed for the 2011–12 KHL season, which saved his life as he was not on the plane that crashed September 7, 2011, killing the majority of the team.
