A painstaking search through NHL.com confirms the following players went unsigned as their rights are no longer held by an NHL club:
- G Lars Volden (Boston, 6th round, 181st)
- D Alex Lepkowski (Buffalo, 5th round, 137th)
- F Gregory Hofmann (Carolina, 4th round, 103rd)
- G Matt Mahalak (Carolina, 6th round, 163rd)
- G Johan Mattsson (Chicago, 7th round, 211th)
- D Dillon Donnelly (Colorado, 7th round, 183rd)
- F Joachim Nermark (Colorado, 4th round, 93rd)
- F Alan Quine (Detroit, 3rd round, 85th)
- G Samu Perhonen (Edmonton, 3rd round, 62nd)
- D Rasmus Bengtsson (Florida, 2nd round, 59th)
- F Iiro Pakarinen (Florida, 7th round, 184th)
- G Christopher Gibson (Los Angeles, 2nd round, 49th)
- F Michael Schumacher (Los Angeles, 7th round, 200th)
- F Olivier Archambault (Montreal, 4th round, 108th)
- F Daniel Pribyl (Montreal, 6th round, 168th)
- F Brent Andrews (Nashville, 7th round, 202nd)
- D Simon Karlsson (Nashville, 5th round, 142nd)
- D Brenden Kichton (NY Islanders, 5th round, 127th)
- F Mitchell Theoret (NY Islanders, 7th round, 185th)
- D Peter Ceresnak (NY Rangers, 6th round, 172nd)
- F Shane McColgan (NY Rangers, 5th round, 134th)
- D Jordan Fransoo (Ottawa, 7th round, 186th)
- D Colin Suellentrop (Philadelphia, 4th round, 116th)
- F Andrew Fritsch (Phoenix, 6th round, 155th)
- F Alexander Ruuttu (Phoenix, 2nd round, 51st)
- D Justin Sefton (San Jose, 3rd round, 89th)
- D Teemu Eronen (St. Louis, 7th round, 192nd)
- G David Honzik (Vancouver, 3rd round, 71st)
- F Pathrik Vesterholm (Vancouver, 6th round, 180th)
- G Steffen Soberg (Washington, 4th round, 117th)
- D Zachary Yuen (Winnipeg, 4th round, 119th)

Also, a hot topic the past week or so has been F Philippe Hudon (Detroit, 5th round, 145th): NHL.com still has him as property of Detroit, but The Hockey News considers him an "Unsigned 2011 Draft Pick" along with the names listed above. I feel safer siding with NHL.com on this one.

Finally, here are some other players (from Europe\overseas) from drafts prior to 2011 who still had NHL rights this year but have since had them relinquished:
- D Radim Ostrcil (Boston, 6th round, 169th in 2007)
- F Karel Hromas (Chicago, 4th round, 123rd in 2004)
- F Jakub Sindel (Chicago, 2nd round, 54th in 2004)
- F Stanislav Balan (Nashville, 7th round, 209th in 2004)
- F Zdenek Bahensky (NY Rangers, 3rd round, 73rd in 2004)
- G Jakub Kovar (Philadelphia, 4th round, 109th in 2006)
- F Vladimir Ruzicka (Phoenix, 4th round, 103rd in 2007)
