The 2018–19 Toronto Maple Leafs season is the 102nd season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on November 22, 1917.[2] The Maple Leafs forward group changed significantly before the season, losing team veterans Tyler Bozak, James van Riemsdyk and Leo Komarov while adding all-star centre John Tavares in free agency, which many publications called one of the biggest signings in NHL history.[3][4] The team is attempting to qualify for the playoffs for a third consecutive season.

Below are the Toronto Maple Leafs' selections at the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, which was held on June 22 and 23, 2018, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The Leafs drafted a total of nine players. They held on to only three (#4, #5, #7) of their own seven picks. On the first day of the draft they exchanged their first-round pick for a lower first-round pick held by the St. Louis Blues but did receive the Blues' third-round pick as well, their second round pick had been traded to the Montreal Canadiens in the Tomas Plekanec deal in February 2018, their third-round pick was given to the New Jersey Devils as compensation for signing general manager Lou Lamoriello in 2015, and their sixth-round pick had been traded to the Vegas Golden Knights in the Calvin Pickard deal in October 2017. Through various trades they acquired an additional six picks, including the first-round pick originally held by St. Louis mentioned above.
