Calgary acquired an additional second round pick from the Florida Panthers on Feb. 27 in a deal that sent forward Jiri Hudler the other way. The Flames also received a fourth round selection in the 2018 NHL Draft.
The Flames acquired a conditional second round pick from the Dallas Stars on Feb. 29 in the trade that sent defenceman Kris Russell to Texas. The pick would have become the Stars' first round selection if Dallas advanced to the 2016 Western Conference Final. They lost to St. Louis in the Western Conference Quarter Final so the pick remains Dallas' second round pick.
The Flames acquired a conditional four round pick from the Nashville Predators on July 1, 2015 in a deal that sent Max Reinhart, originally draft by the Flames in the third round of the 2010 NHL Draft, to Tennessee. The conditions on this pick were not met so Nashville will retain their fourth round selection.
The Flames acquired a sixth round pick, with goaltender Niklas Backstrom, from the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 29, 2016 in exchange for forward David Jones.
The Flames dealt their 2016 seventh round selection when they acquired Freddie Hamilton from the Colorado Avalanche on Oct. 4, 2015 but the conditions on this pick were not met so Calgary will retain their seventh round selection.
All other remaining selections have been retained by the Flames.
