02 :: Colorado Avalanche
03 :: Florida Panthers
04 :: New Jersey Devils
05 :: New York Islanders
06 :: Ottawa Senators
07 :: Manitoba Jets
08 :: Columbus Blue Jackets
09 :: Boston Bruins (from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Phil Kessel trade)

21 :: Ottawa Senators (from the Nashville Predators in the Mike Fisher trade)
22 :: Toronto Maple Leafs (from the Anaheim Ducks in the draft day trade for two second round picks)
23 :: Pittsburgh Penguins
24 :: Ottawa Senators (from the Detroit Red Wings in the draft day trade for two second round picks)
25 :: Toronto Maple Leafs (from the Philadelphia Flyers in the Kris Versteeg trade)
26 :: Chicago Blackhawks (from the Washington Capitals in the draft day trade for Troy Brouwer)
27 :: Tampa Bay Lightning
28 :: Minnesota Wild (from the San Jose Sharks in the draft day trade for Devin Setoguchi, etc.)
29 :: Vancouver Canucks
30 :: Toronto Maple Leafs (from the Boston Bruins in the Tomas Kaberle trade, through the Toronto Maple Leafs on draft day)

OTHER NOTES: The St. Louis Blues don’t have a pick until #32 overall, the Nashville Predators don’t have a pick until #38 and the Los Angeles Kings don’t have a pick until #49. And, if you’re a Flyers fan, you’ll be waiting a while. They don’t get to make a selection until late in the third round (#84 overall). That pick, by way, is from when they traded Dan Hamhuis’s rights to the Penguins last summer. So, without it, the Flyers faithful would be waiting until the fourth round for their first selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Yikes.
