1972 WHA General Player Draft Pick Transactions

This draft was conducted in two parts: a Preliminary round in which each team wrote four names on a piece of paper, which were then submitted and announced, and a General round, which was conducted in rounds as are normal drafts.

The Broncos folded before the start of the season, the negotiating rights to their picks were transferred to the Cleveland Crusaders. Similarly the Screaming Eagles never took to the ice, and their picks were transferred to the Philadelphia Blazers. The Oil Kings changed their name to the Alberta Oilers.
