*Colorado reacquired their 2016 2nd round pick from San Jose in a 2015 Draft Day trade in which the Sharks traded a 2015 2nd round pick (39th overall — A.J. Greer), this pick and a 2017 6th round pick to the Avalanche in exchange for a 2015 2nd round pick (31st overall — Jeremy Roy). San Jose previously acquired this pick from Colorado in the Brad Stuart trade.
*Tampa Bay owns Boston’s 2016 2nd round pick from the Brett Connolly trade.
*Boston owns the New York Islanders’ 2016 2nd round pick from the Johnny Boychuk trade.
*Carolina owns the New York Rangers’ 2016 2nd round pick via the Eric Staal trade.
*Philadelphia owns Chicago’s 2016 2nd round pick from Kimmo Timonen trade.
*Arizona receives a compensatory pick in the 2016 2nd round for not re-signing 2014 first round pick Conner Bleackley, who was drafted by Colorado and later acquired by the Coyotes in the Mikael Boedker trade.
*Calgary owns Florida’s 2016 2nd round pick via the Jiri Hudler trade.
*Calgary owns Dallas’s 2016 2nd round pick via a condition in the Kris Russel trade. The Flames would have received the Stars’ 2016 first rounder over this pick had they reached the 2016 Western Conference finals.
*Toronto returned Pittsburgh’s 2016 2nd round pick from the Daniel Winnik trade. Pittsburgh reacquired this pick from Toronto as a condition in the Phil Kessel trade if they qualified for the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
