Lukacevic was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the 4th round (110th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Lukacevic was born in present-day Montenegro, but his family immigrated to Canada during his youth. He grew up in British Columbia. Between the 2001–02 and 2005–06 seasons, Lukacevic played in the Western Hockey League with the Spokane Chiefs and Swift Current Broncos, however he did play in seven playoff games at the end of the 2005–06 AHL season with the Manchester Monarchs where he scored his first professional goal.

Between the 2006–07 and 2009–10 seasons, Lukacevic bounced between the AHL and the ECHL, playing for the Manchester Monarchs, Reading Royals, Providence Bruins, Las Vegas Wranglers, and Texas Stars.

Lukacevic later played briefly with Eispiraten Crimmitschau in the then 2nd Bundesliga during the 2012–13 season and later trialled with Danish club, Aalborg Pirates of the Metal Ligaen.[1][2][3]

Lukacevic has since had a spell in Britain with Fife Flyers and Coventry Blaze, and in December 2015 signed for Edinburgh Capitals[4] In the summer of 2016 he moved to the Polska Hokej Liga in Poland to sign for GKS Katowice.
