Kubalik played his youth hockey with HC Plzeň 1929, before graduating to play three seasons with the men's team in the professional Czech Extraliga. He was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 5th round (135th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

After a one season in Finland with KalPa of the Liiga, Kubalik left as a free agent to sign his third consecutive one-year deal in a new league, in agreeing to terms with German club, ERC Ingolstadt of the DEL on May 4, 2015.[5]
