Andrej Sekera was born June 8, 1986 in Bojnice, Czechoslovakia. Drafted by the Buffalo Sabres 71st overall in the third round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Sekera spent three seasons with Trencin of the Slovak-Jr. League and two seasons with the OHL's Owen Sound Attack.

As a member of the Owen Sound Attack, Sekera's steady defensive play earned him the Max Kaminsky Trophy as the league's most outstanding defenceman in 2005-06. The following summer, Sekera signed a three-year contract with the Sabres, and joined the club's AHL Affiliate in Rochester for the 2006-07 season. He would appear in a pair of games for the Sabres that year but spend the majority of his time in Rochester.

During the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Sekera was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes for Jamie McBain and a second round draft pick.

In the middle of his second season with the Hurricanes, Sekera was traded to the Los Angeles Kings for Roland McKeown and a first round draft pick.

As a free agent, Sekera signed a six year contract with the Edmonton Oilers on July 1, 2015. He would appear in 81 games for the Oilers during the 2015-16 season, scoring six times and adding 24 assists.
