He was traded from the Raiders to the Rebels in 2001 in time to play for the Rebels during their 2001 Memorial Cup win. While with the Raiders, he was selected in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals in the second round, 34th overall. Before turning professional, his playing rights were traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He played four seasons in the Penguins organization, primarily for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, except for three games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2002–03.

Lupaschuk recently attended Phoenix Coyotes training camp at the start of the 2009-10 season, but was released on September 20, 2009.

In 2008, he joined the HC Sibir Novosibirsk of the Kontinental Hockey League after a tryout with the Anaheim Ducks, played there until 19 January 2009 and signed on 22 January 2009 by Mora IK.[1]
