Valicevic was drafted in the 6th round (114th overall) of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders. He spent four seasons playing with Lake Superior State University in the NCAA from 1991 to 1995 before turning pro in the 1995–96 season. Over that period of time, he recorded 57 goals, 66 assists and 123 points in 161 games. He then moved to the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) for the 1995–96 season where he played 60 games with the Louisiana IceGators, scoring 62 points and earning a call-up to the Springfield Falcons of the AHL for two games. He played 8 more games for the IceGators during the 1996–97 season before joining the Houston Aeros of the IHL where he played until 1999, when he earned a spot with the Nashville Predators, playing 19 games in the 1998–99 season.
He spent the next two seasons in the NHL as well, before signing with the Los Angeles Kings organization in August 2001. He spent one season with the Kings, playing only 19 NHL games, the rest of the season spent with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL. In July 2002, Valicevic signed with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim organization, with similar results to those in Los Angeles, playing most of the 2002–03 season with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks of the AHL. Valicevic was again a free agent following the 2002–03 season, this time signing with the Dallas Stars, again with little success in the 2003–04 season, playing only 7 games with the Stars, the rest spent with the Utah Grizzlies.
Valicevic then moved to the UHL, and played the 2004–05 season with the Flint Generals before moving to Europe, where he had a short stay with TPS. He then went to Germany to play with ERC Ingolstadt of the DEL. He has spent the 2005–06 and 2006–07 with Ingolstadt and most recently played for EC KAC of the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga.
