He was also a member of the 1976 and 1980 Czech Olympic teams and participated in seven games for the national team in the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cup tournaments.

From 1985 through 1991, Chalupa played with EHC Freiburg in the German Elite League before going into a two-year retirement. However, Chalupa missed playing hockey at the elite level and decided to return for one final season with Dukla Jihlava. In 12 games, he picked up four assists before retiring from pro hockey at the age of 40.
