He was drafted by the San Jose Sharks as their ninth-round pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. Hyvönen started out in the Kärpät junior team, and started playing in the SM-liiga with TPS. After playing on a number of SM-liiga teams, Hyvönen departed for North America for the 2001–02 season, which he mostly spent with the Sharks' AHL affiliate, the Cleveland Barons. He was next signed by the Florida Panthers, but the Columbus Blue Jackets signed him from the waivers list before the start of the season. Near the end of the 2002–03 NHL season the Blue Jackets loaned Hyvönen to Färjestads BK in the Swedish Elitserien. He started the 2004–05 NHL lockout season with Färjestad, and later transferred to Ilves in the SM-liiga. In 2005 Hyvönen signed with Fribourg-Gottéron in the NLA, but although he led the team in scoring by the start of November, his performance was deemed unsatisfactory and he was sold to Jokerit.

In February 2002, Hyvönen received an eight-game suspension for high sticking in the AHL. He also received the most penalty minutes, 189, in the SM-liiga during the 1999–2000 season.

Prior to the 2008–09 season, he signed for Södertälje SK of the Swedish Elite League but on November 28 his contract was mutually cancelled and Hyvönen moved to HC Dinamo Minsk.
