A finesse player who is most effective around the net, Huselius' 1998-99 season was split between Vastra Frolunda and Farjestad before spending the entire 1999-2000 season with Vastra Frolunda. In his first full season with the team, Huselius led his team in goals (21) and points (44) before leading the Swedish Elite League in goals (32), assists (35), points (67), power play goals (10), shorthanded goals (5) and game-winning goals (9) during the 2000-01 season, thus marking the first time a player has swept all six categories in Swedish Elite League history and it is believed to be a first in any major European league.

In his first season with the Panthers, the Osterhaninge, Sweden native led the Panthers in goals 23 and finished third in points with 45. Huselius continued to be an important player for the Panthers in 2002-03, again surpassing the 20 goal mark and finishing third in team scoring. Following a 31 point season in 2003-04 and lock out year the next, Huselius returned to his homeland and had a strong campaign in 2004-05.

Coming off a strong season in the SEL, Huselius returned to the Panthers in 2005-06, yet was dealt to the Calgary Flames in the early stages of the season. After a great start in Calgary in 2005-06, Huselius set new career highs in points (77), goals (34) and assists (43) while finishing second on the team in goal scoring. The following season his numbers dwindled somewhat, and in the summer of 2008 he signed with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

On the International stage, Huselius represented Sweden at the 2000 and 2001 World Championships capturing a bronze medal in 2000 and the 1997 and 1998 World Junior Championships.
