After completion of his entry-level contract, Busto was released as a free agent by the Canadiens to briefly play in 9 games with the Elmira Jackals during the 2009–10 season. He belatedly signed a one-year deal in Europe with Italian club, HC Bolzano of the Serie A on December 27, 2010. Busto played in 12 games for Bolzano before returning to the familiar ECHL for the following 2011–12 season with the Las Vegas Wranglers. Busto enjoyed his most successful season in the ECHL playing in a career high 65 games and contributing to the Wranglers playoff run as Kelly Cup finalists.
On June 25, 2012, Busto returned to Europe to sign an initial one-year contract with French club Ducs d'Angers of the Ligue Magnus. In the 2012–13 season with the Owls, Busto led the team from the blueline in scoring with 14 points in 26 games. He was signed to a two-year contract extension on May 7, 2013.
