The 1979 NHL Entry Draft took place on August 9, 1979, at the Queen Elizabeth Hotelmarker in Montrealmarker, Quebecmarker.This draft is generally considered one of the best draft classes in NHL Entry Draft history as it produced future hall-of-famersmarker 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.

The most likely reason for the draft's rich harvest was because the minimum draft age was lowered by one year, causing two years' worth of draft picks to go in the same draft.
