Celebrities who played hockey in school range from those Canadian-born actors and musicians who show their love of the ice sport in their current work to those unlikely former ice hockey players that you might not expect. Each spent some of their childhood lacing up the skates to play the popular winter sport either recreationally or as a member of their local or school teams.

As you may have guessed, stars like Mike Myers, Dave Coulier, Michael Vartan, Adam Sandler and Eddie Cahill all have a history of playing hockey. This might be known to you as all have portrayed characters who also played hockey, and looked pretty convincing when doing so. It was no coincidence that Myers' character Wayne from "Wayne's World" played street hockey or that Vartan's Agent Vaughn in "Alias" was frequently exercising at the rink as both are among the stars whose real-life hockey talent crossed into their on-screen performances.

Then there's another category of stars who don't exactly scream that they are former hockey players. Michael J. Fox played when he was young and remains a loyal fan to this day. Singers Avril Lavigne and Justin Bieber both played when they were younger. Even socialite Paris Hilton was once part of her high school hockey team. Yes, it really happened.

Like the celebrities who played tennis in school many of the celebrities on this list continue to enjoy playing hockey either recreationally or at charity events. While not all still lace 'em up and hop back on the ice, all share their time playing hockey as a fond memory from the past.
