St Kilda have received a first-round draft selection as compensation for losing Brendon Goddard to free agency, while Port Adelaide were a big winner with two extra second-round picks.

The Saints will get pick 13 in the national draft for losing 203-game veteran Goddard, who joined Essendon on a four-year deal on the opening day of the free agency period.

The Power will now have pick 30 and 31 after losing Danyle Pearce and Troy Chaplin to Fremantle and Richmond respectively.

West Coast received a third-round pick for losing Quentin Lynch to Collingwood, as did Hawthorn, who lost Clinton Young on Friday to the Pies.

Melbourne also gained a third-round selection, with their signing of ex-Cat Shannon Byrnes slightly offsetting the loss of Brent Moloney to Brisbane and Jared Rivers to Geelong.

Adelaide received no compensation for losing Chris Knights to Richmond, while Geelong and Hawthorn also received nothing in regards to Byrnes and Tom Murphy respectively.

Among those players left stranded after the inaugural free agency period include Carlton pair Bret Thornton and Jordan Russell, Port Adelaide's Steven Salopek and St Kilda's Raphael Clarke.

One trade went through on Friday with Richmond exchanging Angus Graham and pick 50 to Adelaide for selection 40.

But there has been no movement on the Kurt Tippett trade with Crows list manager David Noble saying 'we are working our backsides off to get the best deal for our club'.

Meanwhile, Scott Gumbleton and Lachlan Hansen are off limits for rivals clubs after the duo signed contract extensions at Essendon and North Melbourne respectively.

Despite being linked to a number of rivals clubs, 24-year-old key forward Gumbleton signed a one-year contract extension to remain at the Bombers.

Hansen, 24, also ignored offers from other clubs to remain at the Kangaroos and signed a two-year extension.
