Voters - votes are divided among 3 groups - representatives of hockey association (president, NT coach, U20 coach), coaches of league teams and representatives of sport media.

There are 3 rounds (right now it's at the end of extraliga, WC and NHL, most reasonable at Holeceks time would be half season, end of season, end of WC or just one round) and every voter chooses 10 best players at that part of season. 1st player gets 10 points, 10th 1.

Only big change I found mentioned is regarding NHL players, but there may be some undocumented changes I missed
Thank you for the overview and historic perspective.

So the Zlata Hokejka award is not a strict domestic league award.

It is an all inclusive seasonal hockey award.
