Draft notes:[50]

  1. The Arizona Coyotes' third-round pick went 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).[51] The condition – Florida will receive the better of Arizona or Detroit's third-round picks in 2017[52] – was converted on March 29, 2017 when Detroit clinched a better regular season record than Arizona for the 2016–17 NHL season.
  2. The Anaheim Ducks' sixth-round pick went to the Florida Panthers as the result of a trade on December 4, 2014 that sent Colby Robak to Anaheim in exchange for Jesse Blacker and this pick (being conditional at the time of the trade). The condition — Florida will receive a sixth-round pick in 2017 dependent on how many games Robak played for Anaheim during the 2014–15 NHL season[53] — the date of conversion is unknown.[54]
