Hunt endured a frustrating 2018 season after a breakout 2017. He played the first seven games of the season, but spent most of the year in the VFL trying to recapture his form and consistency. An ankle injury saw him miss six weeks of football and flared up again in his return to the AFL side in Round 21. Hunt was involved in Casey's 2018 finals campaign and is contracted until the end of 2020.
