He played for HC Slovan Bratislava of the Czechoslovak First Ice Hockey League from 1974 to 1981. During this time, he represented Czechoslovakia in five World Championships (winning two gold medals), two Winter Olympics, and the 1976 Canada Cup.
In 1981 he joined his two younger brothers, Peter and Anton as free agents with Quebec Nordiques, playing with them for four seasons. They were the first brother trio on one team since the Plager brothers (Barclay, Bob and Bill) played together for the St. Louis Blues in 1972. He was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs before the beginning of the 1985–1986 season, playing one season in Toronto before ending his career in Switzerland with the HC Sierre.
He has an older brother, Vladimír, former assistant coach of the Slovakia national ice hockey team, and is the uncle of two current NHL players, Yan Stastny and Paul Stastny, both of whom are Peter's sons.
He retired to the Quebec City area and after a brief attempt at coaching with the Junior Tier II CNDF hockey team, is now the owner of a golf club and a hotel in Lévis, on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River near Quebec City.
