Nikita Sergeyevich Klyukin (Russian: Никита Серге́евич Клюкин) (10 November 1989 – 7 September 2011) was a Russian professional ice hockey centre who played for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
On 7 September 2011, Klyukin was killed in the 2011 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl air disaster, when a Yakovlev Yak-42 passenger aircraft, carrying nearly his entire Lokomotiv team, crashed just outside Yaroslavl, Russia. The team was traveling to Minsk to play their opening game of the season, with its coaching staff and prospects. Lokomotiv officials said "'everyone from the main roster was on the plane plus four players from the youth team.'"
