Kent Huskins was born May 4, 1979 in Ottawa, Ontario. Drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the sixth round (156th overall) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Huskins is a graduate of Clarkson University.

A durable and stay-at-home defenseman, Huskins spent five seasons in the American Hockey League competing with Norfolk, San Antonio, Manitoba, and Portland before he made his NHL debut with the Ducks on December 23, 2006. Huskins remained on the clubs blue line after February 25, 2007 and saw action in 33 games with the Ducks that season. He went on to play in all 21 playoff games during the Anaheim Ducks rout to a Stanley Cup championship. In the off-season, Huskins signed a two-year contract extension with Anaheim on June 23, 2007.

In 2009, Huskins was traded by Anaheim at the NHL trade deadline alongside Travis Moen to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for forward Nick Bonino and goaltender Timo Pielmeier.

On July 2, 2011, as an unrestricted free agent, Huskins inked a deal with the St. Louis Blues. He would suffer an ankle injury early in the season and was limited to just 25 games in which he notched two goals and five assists.

Huskins would begin the lockout shortened 2012-13 season at the AHL level with the Norfolk Admirals where he would suit up in a pair of games before reaching a deal with the Detroit Red Wings in January 22, 2013. He would go on to appear in 11 games for the Red Wings before finding himself on the move again. He was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on March 30, 2013 in exchange for future considerations.
