The presented research focuses on the commonly used Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS), which is applied to an evaluation of a basic set of 581 national hockey league (NHL) players in the 2018/2019 season. This is used in combination with a number of objective methods for weighting indicators for identifying differences in their usage. A total of 11 indicators with their own testimonial values, including points, hits, blocked shots and more, are selected for this purpose. The selection of a method for weighting indicators has a major influence on the results obtained and the differences between them, and maintains the internal links within the ranked set of players. Of the evaluated methods, we prefer the Mean Weight method, and we recommend that the input indicators be considered equivalent when evaluating athletes. View Full-Text
