Huddlestone impressed in victory over Norwich City.
"No disrespect to what has gone before in the club's history, but I think the fans realise when there is a class act in front of you then you're going to enjoy watching him play," Bruce told the Hull Daily Mail.
"When you have that ability, he's just a wonderful footballer and makes it look so easy.
"When you can play off both feet like he can then he has that natural gift to make the game look so easy and that is the sign of a great player.
"He's such a natural, he sees a pass, takes a pass, has both-feet control, and he'll only get better playing week in and week out. I can't remember the last time he's played 90 minutes of a competitive game and we're delighted to get him."
