Vladimir Viktorovich Tsyplakov (Belarusian: Уладзiмiр Вiктаравiч Цыплакоў; born April 18, 1969) is a Belarusian professional ice hockey player winger. He was drafted in the third round, 59th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.
He made his National Hockey League debut with the Kings during the 1995–96 season and was a fixture on their roster until being traded to the Buffalo Sabres during the 1999–2000 season. During his time with the Sabres, Tsyplakov often played in a line with Michael Peca and Vaclav Varada. This line proved very fruitful for the Sabres, often controlling the tempo while on the ice. After a season and a half with Buffalo, he returned to the Russian Superleague to play with AK Bars Kazan. Most recently, Tsyplakov played for HC CSKA Moscow during the 2004–05 season.
In his NHL career, Tsyplakov played in 331 games, recording 69 goals and 101 assists.
