NHL Amateur Draft
 < 1977 1979 > 

The 1978 NHL Amateur Draft occurred at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Quebec on June 15, 1978. It was the last draft to be called the "Amateur Draft" before the process was renamed to the NHL Entry Draft in 1979. Players were drafted at 20 years of age in 1978.

Selections by round[edit]

Below are listed the selections in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. The Washington Capitals chose to take an extra pick in the first round instead of participating in the Dispersal Draft (Tim Coulis), and were allowed to pick in Cleveland's position in the second round to complete the Bob Girard/Walt McKechnie trade.[1] The New York Islanders had traded their fourth round selection to Cleveland, so that pick was forfeited.[2]

= NHL All-Star[3] = Hall of Famers
