Duluth, Minn. – It’s that time of the year again. The countdown to the 2020 Northwoods League season is finally upon us. In 142 short days, our home opener will be here! As always, the Duluth Huskies will kick it off with their first Hot Stove of the season on January 28th from 6-7 PM. Once again, Bent Paddle will host the event at their taproom in West Duluth.

The Huskies’ Hot Stove at Bent Paddle last year was a rousing success despite the sub-zero conditions on the day of the event. People flooded the taproom to hear an address from field manager Marcus Pointer. This year should be no different, as those who attend will receive updates about the club the media doesn’t even know about! 

Just as in previous years, admission to the event will be only $5. On top of admission, you will receive raffle tickets to be used on items raffled off at each Hot Stove as well as a grand prize that will be raffled off during our final Hot Stove in May! All proceeds will go towards funding activities on our Education Day on June 1st.

Call or stop by the office to secure your 2020 June Pass to get tickets to all of our June home games. Gear up with hot, new gear from Harley’s Hut delivered directly from As always, stay connected with us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Go Huskies!
