Chipchura began his major junior career with the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League (WHL) in 2002–03. Following his second season with the Raiders, he was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens. On March 25, 2006, Chipchura was signed to a three-year entry level contract by the Canadiens and joined AHL affiliate the Hamilton Bulldogs to complete the 2005–06 season. In 2006–07, Chipchura remained with the Bulldogs. After posting 39 point in the regular season, Chipchura added a further 6 goals and 13 points in the playoffs to help Hamilton capture the Calder Cup.

In the 2007–08 season, Kyle played his first NHL game on October 10, 2007. He netted his first goal later that month on October 20 against the Buffalo Sabres.

On December 2, 2009, he was traded to the Anaheim Ducks for a fourth-round pick in 2011.[1]

Chipchura attended Team Canada's selection camp prior to the 2005 World Junior Championships and was expected to make the team despite being only 18 (players up to 20 years old are eligible for the tournament). During practice with the Raiders, however, he suffered a severed Achilles tendon and was not able to be selected as a member of the gold-medal-winning Canadian team.

The following year, Chipchura was invited to try out again for the 2006 World Junior Championships. After being selected for the Canadian team, Chipchura was named team captain by head coach Brent Sutter on December 16, 2005.
