He was noted for his physical approach, which led to many bookings, and spent most of his professional career at Espanyol, with which he played the 2007 UEFA Cup Final. He appeared in 180 official games for the club, over the course of seven La Liga seasons.

Born in Sabadell, Barcelona, Catalonia, Hurtado was a product of RCD Espanyol‘s youth system. He first appeared with the main squad in the last game of the 2001–02 season, still going on to spend several years with the B-team.

After a second division loan at SD Eibar, Hurtado returned as an important midfield element, renewing his contract until 2009[1] and scoring his first goal for the club in 2006–07, a 2–1 home win over RC Celta de Vigo in the league opener[2]– during that campaign, he also collected 12 yellow cards. Additionally, he played against Sevilla FC in the 2007 UEFA Cup Final at Hampden Park, being sent off after receiving a second bookable offence in the 67th minute.[3]

In 2007–08, Hurtado only missed four league matches but received 12 yellow cards. In the following season, as Espanyol fared slightly better, he produced roughly the same numbers – netting twice[4][5] but being booked 13 times.

In late August 2010, 29-year-old Hurtado signed a three-year deal with Olympiacos F.C. in Greece, rejoining former Espanyol manager Ernesto Valverde.[6] However, in the same month of the following year, he terminated his contract and returned to his country, joining top level’s Granada CF for two years.[7]

On 1 February 2013, free agent Hurtado moved to second level club Girona FC for one season.[8] He renewed his contract after appearing in a required number of matches[9] but, after suffering a knee injury during pre-season,[10] all but failed to appear for them again until his release in June 2014.[11]
