Anton Šťastný (born August 5, 1959 in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia) is a former Slovak professional ice hockey left winger who played nine seasons with the Quebec Nordiques of the National Hockey League from 1980 until 1989. He was the first player born and trained in Slovakia to be drafted by an NHL team. He is the brother of Vladimír Šťastný, Marián Šťastný, and Peter Šťastný, and the uncle of Yan Stastny and Paul Stastny (both Peter's sons), all of whom are (or have been) involved in ice hockey at a professional level. Anton's son, Thomas Šťastný, played in Switzerland, last for Martigny in 2006.

Šťastný was originally drafted 198th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft, but he re-entered and was drafted 83rd overall by the Nordiques in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. He played 650 career NHL games, scoring 252 goals and 384 assists for 636 point and scored at least 25 goals for eight consecutive seasons.

He played his first nine seasons alongside his brother Peter, four of which were also played alongside Marian. They were the first brother trio on one team since the Bentley brothers (Doug, Max and Reg) played together for the Chicago Black Hawks in 1943. He ranks eighth overall in NHL points by a Slovakian player.
