Niclas Wallin (born February 20, 1975 in Boden, Norrbotten County) is a professional ice hockey player who plays for the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes. His career began in Bodens IK, the hometown team. Having had a breakthrough in the 1995–96 season, he was picked up by the Swedish Elitserien team Brynäs IF. After spending some years with Brynäs IF, Wallin was drafted in the 4th round, 97th overall by the Hurricanes at the 2000 NHL Entry Draft and has remained at the team to this day. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Wallin returned to his native Sweden playing 39 games for Luleå HF. In 2006, he won his first Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Niclas Wallin is known to many Hurricanes fans as "The Secret Weapon" due to his timing with postseason goals. He has only scored three of them, but they have all come in overtime, including one in Montreal in 2002 and game 2 of the 2006 postseason series against the New Jersey Devils.

He scored in his own net once during a delayed penalty.
