Ivan Petrovich Novoseltsev (born January 23, 1979) is a Russian retired professional ice hockey winger. He was drafted in the fourth round, 95th overall, by the Florida Panthers in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.

Drafted from the Russian Superleague's Krylya Sovetov Moscow, Novoseltsev made his North American debut with the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League during the 1997–98 season. In the 1998–99 OHL season, he finished with 96 points to rank in the league's top ten in scoring.

Novoseltsev made his National Hockey League debut with the Panthers during the 1999–2000 season and spent parts of five seasons with the team. During the 2003–04 season he was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes, where he scored two goals in seventeen games. During the 2004-05 NHL lockout, Novoseltsev split time between HC Spartak Moscow and Lada Togliatti.

Novoseltsev played four games for the American Hockey League's Norfolk Admirals early in the 2006–07 season before returning to Russia again to play for Amur Khabarovsk.

Novoseltsev joined Khimik Voskresensk in 2009, playing 29 games with the team. He remained with the team during the 2009-10 season (as the team was relegated to the second-tier Vysshaya Liga due to financial concerns), scoring five goals and ten points in 40 games. Novoseltsev retired after the 2009-10 MHL season.
