Notes:

  1. The Boston Bruins' fifth-round pick went to the Winnipeg Jets as the result of a trade on March 1, 2017, that sent Drew Stafford to Boston in exchange for this pick (being conditional at the time of the trade).[66] The condition – Winnipeg will receive a fifth-round pick in 2018 if the Bruins reach the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs and Stafford plays in half of Boston's remaining games in the 2016–17 NHL season[67] – was converted on April 4, 2017.
