He played for Viking and Stjernen in Norway, then Färjestad and Leksand in Sweden until 2001. He was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the sixth round, 180th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
A stint in the DEG Metro Stars from 2001 to 2008 was followed by three seasons in the Hannover Scorpions. In the 2005-2006 season of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga, he was named MVP and also became the top scorer in the same season with a total of 71 points. That accomplishment also led to Vikingstad being named the best Norwegian ice hockey player of 2005-06, earning him the Golden Puck award.
He returned to Norway Stavanger Oilers, and retired in 2013 after winning the domestic cup.
