The 1979 NHL Entry Draft took place on August 9, 1979 at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Quebec.

The 1979 NHL Entry Draft is generally considered one of the best draft classes in NHL Entry Draft history as it produced future hall-of-famers Mike Gartner, Ray Bourque, and Michel Goulet in the first round alone. 19 of the 21 players selected in the first round would play at least 450 career NHL games, and all 21 had NHL careers of at least 235 games.
