*Carolina owns Winnipeg’s 2016 3rd round pick from the Jiri Tlusty trade.
*Vancouver re-acquired its 2016 3rd round pick via Pittsburgh from the Brandon Sutter trade. The Penguins previously acquired the pick from Buffalo as compensation for the Sabres’ hiring of former Pittsburgh head coach Dan Bylsma. Buffalo previously acquired this pick from the Islanders in the Michal Neuvirth/Chad Johnson trade. The Islanders previously acquired this pick from Vancouver in 2014 when they traded Andrey Pedan to the Canucks for Alexandre Mallet and this pick.
*New Jersey owns Ottawa’s 2016 3rd round pick from a 2015 Draft Day trade in which the Devils swapped a 2015 2nd round pick (36th overall – RW Gabriel Gagner) for Ottawa’s 2015 2nd round pick (42nd overall – G Mackenzie Blackwood) and this pick.
*New Jersey owns Detroit’s 2016 3rd round pick from a condition in the Marek Zidlicky trade. The pick became a 3rd rounder when the Red Wings were eliminated in the first round of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
*Toronto owns New Jerseys 2016 3rd round pick via Pittsburgh from the Phil Kessel trade. The Penguins perviously acquired this pick from New Jersey as compensation for the Devils hiring John Hynes as head coach.
*Dallas owns San Jose’s 2016 3rd round pick from the Jason Demers/Brenden Dillon trade.
*Buffalo owns St. Louis’s 2016 3rd round pick from unmet conditions in the Ryan Miller trade.
*Philadelphia owns Los Angeles’s 2016 3rd round pick from the Vincent Lecavalier trade.
*Anaheim owns Florida’s 2016 3rd round pick via New Jersey from the Kyle Palmieri trade. The Devils previously acquired this pick from Florida as a condition of the Jaromir Jagr trade. New Jersey has the option of giving Anaheim the lower of either Florida’s original 3rd rounder (this pick), or the 3rd rounder the Panthers acquired from Minnesota in the Sean Bergenheim trade). As of the printing of this edition, this pick was less favorable to New Jersey than the Minnesota pick, so it goes to Anaheim.
*Buffalo owns Dallas’s 2016 3rd round pick via San Jose from a condition in the Jonas Enroth trade. The condition was the Sabres would receive a 2nd round pick in 2015 if Enroth won four playoff games for Dallas, which never qualified for the postseason.
*St. Louis owns Washington’s 2016 3rd round pick from the T.J. Oshie trade.
Note: Detroit has the option to choose any one of Toronto’s 3rd round picks from 2016, 2017 or 2018. This condition is from the Maple Leafs’ hiring of former Red Wings’ coach Mike Babcock.
Note: New Jersey has the option to choose any of of Toronto’s 3rd round picks from 2016, 2017 or 2018. This condition is from the Maple Leafs’ hiring of former Devils’s GM Lou Lamoriello.
