A hulking-winger, Hussey played four seasons at the University of Wisconsin recording 84 points (42-42-84) before making his professional debut with the AHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in 2002-03. After the better part of two seasons in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Hussey made his NHL debut with the Pittsburgh in the latter stages of the 2003-04 season. In three games with the Penguins, Hussey registered three points (2-1-3).
Hussey would continue to hone his skills with Wilkes-Barre over parts of the next two seasons seeing NHL action with Pittsburgh for only 13 games. In the summer of 2006 Hussey would sign as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings.
Hussey appeared in 75 games with the Red Wings' AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids while appearing in a handful of games with the parent club in Detroit. Hussey's stint in Detroit came to an end in the summer of 2007, when the centreman signed with the Colorado Avalanche.
