Think Massey High School sports stars and you might think of golf, cycling, squash, rugby and touch.
Ice hockey? Not readily.
But that doesn't bother the Hyde twins - Alex and Lochlyn - born in Canada and now playing their sport to the top level in New Zealand.
The 17-year-olds, in their final year at Massey High, are starting to be more recognisable around school than just the twins with the Canadian accents. Alex is a silver prefect and now gets stopped and quizzed about the fact she is an Ice Fern, a national ice hockey rep.
In fact, she is a long way from Massey at the moment as she prepares for next week's world division 2B championships in Scotland. Lochlyn, a goalie, is not far off the Ice Fernz. She was this month named best goalie at the women's nationals in Dunedin, an event the strong Auckland side won again.
The twins are steeped in ice hockey, being from the Mecca of the sport in Canada, and their Kiwi father Paul plays. They have faced him too a few times on the rink. He analyses their play and keeps them honest, though they joke that sometimes causes tension.
They have also played each other on occasion.
"It's actually interesting watching them on opposition teams and Alex is shooting on Lochlyn because she knows where Lochlyn's weakness is and Lochlyn knows where Alex's strength is," says their mother, Holly.
One of the challenges of playing ice hockey in Auckland is there are only two rinks (in Avondale and Botany Downs). They service the whole of the North Island. As you can imagine, ice time is at a premium.
"Usually we get ice time at random times, like 9pm, so sometimes we might not get home until after midnight," Alex says. "It's hard to try to catch up on sleep."
Especially in the midst of their senior college year. But that's what you do if you are passionate about your sport.
"I like the mental part of it, how you have to work it out. You can't just expect it to come to you. I like being able to jump on the ice and feel like I'm at home," says Alex, a left wing or forward who loves popping up anywhere on the ice and is a regular scorer.
She was first selected for the Ice Fernz last year but was doing some schooling in the USA, so opted out. The looming world championships are an enticing challenge.
"I am so excited. It's really nerve-wracking, being one of the rookies on the team. But as soon as I hit the ice, it'll be just hockey,' she says.
Sister Lochlyn will be in Canada next week on a mission to buy goalie gear. It's a lot cheaper there -- ice hockey is not cheap if you are any good and ambitious -- and more readily available than in New Zealand. She would love to follow in her sister's footsteps, sooner rather than later.
"I just love the speed of it and the challenge it can become. The big thing is improving yourself and that will help your team," Lochlyn says.
The twins play as much ice hockey as they can -- there is no school league -- and that includes the more relaxed Backyard Hockey League and Under-20s. Sometimes they have to mix in with the boys to make up the numbers, but that doesn't faze them.
"There are a few jerks out there, but they are not too bad. It toughens you mentally. It makes you skate faster so they don't fall on you!" Alex says.
Most who have only a passing knowledge of ice hockey always ask them whether they get tied up in fights, as one sees in the NHL.
Lochlyn: "'Do you punch their teeth out?' they say.
"We say: 'Actually, it's a non-contact sport!'"
