A couple of trades were made prior to the dispersal draft. The Philadelphia Wings traded Geoff Snider to the Calgary Roughnecks in exchange for the 8th overall selection in the draft. The Wings used that selection to draft Ryan Boyle. Snider, an All-Star transition player and faceoff specialist, won a league-best 295 faceoffs last season.

On Thursday, the Boston Blazers traded Brenden Thenhaus and their first round selection in the 2011 Entry Draft to the Buffalo Bandits in exchange for the sixth overall selection in Friday's draft. Boston used the selection to draft John Orsen.
