He was drafted in the seventh round by the New York Islanders at the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft as 121st pick overall. The same year he also got selected as 66th overall by the Houston Aeros in the eight round of the 1977 WHA Amateur Draft.
Since the Islanders did not offer him a contract within one year, he became the first player to be drafted by a team in the NHL twice. This time the Vancouver Canucks selected Lückner in the fourth round, 56th overall, of the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. However, he never played for any of the three teams.
After his retirement he has been a coach for several teams in the Elitserien, including Färjestads BK, HV71, Mora IK, Modo Hockey and, currently, Linköpings HC. In 2007, he won the Swedish Championship with Modo Hockey.
