HK Orange 20 is an ice hockey team, which plays in the Slovak Extraliga since the 2007/2008 season.

The team was established after a disappointing performance by the Slovakia men's national junior ice hockey team in the previous world junior championship. The youth players from across the league were placed on the team, with a notable amount coming from HK Dukla Trenčín and HC Slovan Bratislava.

The team only plays games on Fridays and Sundays. It is also excluded from the last week before the winter break as the team prepares for the IIHF World U20 Championship and from the playoffs.
