no, although there was likely some energy related to (ie a bit like a twinning), as that hurricane was due north of us (Fiji)
it was a wave depression that got an energy boost from a very cold airflow straight from antartica and from a sting jet over it and from warmer than normal ocean temperatures (still 20c)

Another article.  Looks like you are going to get hit again.  I hope the next one isn't as bad.

Quote
A powerful storm that hit Auckland, New Zealand on April 10, 2018 left widespread damage and an 'unprecedented' 200 000 properties without electricity. In addition, cell phone network was severely damaged, leaving many citizens without service. Another front is expected to move rapidly up New Zealand on April 12, bringing a few thunderstorms and a short, sharp spell of strong winds. A watch has been issued for Auckland and Northland tomorrow evening.

will not be as bad the next one
I think this was one was as bad as it was due to a Sting Jet associated with the low
Also the low was very fast moving and so that increased the windspeed (analogy is like throwing a ball out the window of a moving train)
