Hussey was a part of KKR in the inaugural IPL back in 2008 and also played alongside current head coach Brendon McCullum.
The Knights will play their first match against SRH on March 24.
Only Kuldeep Yadav is certain to travel to England for the World Cup from KKR team.
Under the leadership of Gambhir, the Knight Riders had lifted the IPL trophy twice.

Starc had earlier informed that he received a text message from the franchise stating about them releasing from the contract.
KKR progressed to the second qualifier last time around.
The Kolkata Knight Riders' CEO wants the players who are on the bench to get exposure.
Abhishek Nayar has been appointed as the head coach.
