Luksa was drafted 172nd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft and 177th overall by the Phoenix Roadrunners in the 1974 WHA Amateur Draft but never played for either team as Luska went on to spend four seasons in the American Hockey League for the Nova Scotia Voyageurs, winning the Calder Cup in successive years in 1977 and 1978. In 1978 the Roadrunners folded and Luksa signed with the Cincinnati Stingers as a free agent, playing 78 regular season games for the team, scoring 8 goals and twelve assists for 20 points. The WHA folded at the end of the season and Luksa was claimed by the Hartford Whalers in the Dispersal Draft. Luksa would only play eight games for the Whalers, scoring one assist, as he spent much of the season in the AHL with the Springfield Indians and would later spend another full season in the league with the Binghamton Whalers.
Luksa subsequently began selling real estate in Newmarket, Ontario.
