Notes

  • The Arizona Coyotes' second-round pick went to the Philadelphia Flyers as the result of a trade on June 24, 2017 that sent a second and third-round pick both in 2017 (44th and 75th overall) and the Islanders' fourth-round pick in 2017 (108th overall) to Arizona in exchange for this pick.
  • The Philadelphia Flyers' second-round pick went to the Arizona Coyotes as the result of a trade on June 24, 2017 that sent a second-round pick in 2017 (35th overall) to Philadelphia in exchange for a third-round pick in 2017 (75th overall), the Islanders' fourth-round pick in 2017 (108th overall) and this pick.
  • The Arizona Coyotes' third-round pick will go to the Florida Panthers as the result of a trade on August 25, 2016 that sent Dave Bolland and Lawson Crouse to Arizona in exchange for a conditional second-round pick in 2018 and this pick (being conditional at the time of the trade). The condition – Florida will receive the better of Arizona or Detroit's third-round picks in 2017 was converted on March 29, 2017 when Detroit clinched a better regular season record than Arizona for the 2016–17 NHL season.
  • The Detroit Red Wings' third-round pick will go to the Arizona Coyotes as the result of a trade on June 20, 2016 that sent Maxim Letunov and a sixth-round pick in 2017 to San Jose in exchange for a fourth-round pick in 2016 and this pick. San Jose previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on May 26, 2016 that sent Dylan Sadowy to Detroit in exchange for this pick.
  • The Philadelphia Flyers' third-round pick went to the Arizona Coyotes as the result of a trade on June 24, 2017 that sent a second-round pick in 2017 (35th overall) to Philadelphia in exchange for a second-round pick in 2017 (44th overall), the Islanders’ fourth-round pick in 2017 (108th overall) and this pick.
  • The New York Islanders' fourth-round pick went to the Arizona Coyotes as the result of a trade on June 24, 2017 that sent a second-round pick in 2017 (35th overall) to Philadelphia in exchange for a second and third-round picks both in 2017 (44th and 75th overall) and this pick. Philadelphia previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on June 25, 2016 that sent San Jose's fourth-round pick in 2016 to New York in exchange for this pick.
  • The Vancouver Canucks' fifth-round pick went to the Arizona Coyotes as the result of a trade on June 24, 2017 that sent Calgary's third-round pick in 2017 (78th overall) to Edmonton in exchange for St. Louis' third-round pick in 2017 (82nd overall) and this pick. Edmonton previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on February 24, 2016 that sent Philip Larsen to Vancouver in exchange for this pick (being conditional at the time of the trade). The condition: Edmonton will receive a fifth-round pick in 2017 if Larsen fails to maintain a scoring rate of 0.3 points per game over the 2016–17 NHL season with a minimum of 42 games played — was converted on March 4, 2017, when it became mathematically impossible for Larsen to appear in 42 games during the 2016–17 season.
  • The Arizona Coyotes' sixth-round pick will go to the San Jose Sharks as the result of a trade on June 20, 2016 that sent a fourth-round pick in 2016 and Detroit's third-round pick in 2017 to Arizona in exchange for Maxim Letunov and this pick.
