What is the most famous last name shared between a hockey player and an athlete from another sport?

I caught the last few minutes of the Texas Tech game last night to keep track of my fantasy team, and noticed there was a player named Crosby, which got me thinking- What is the most famous last name shared between two players from two different sports?

Example- Justin Williams(Carolina) and Serena Williams(Tennis)

    ** According to Jim McEnroe, he knew tennis.

    Im not sure if this would count, but it's the only one I can remember at the moment. Ryan Smith NFL Tennessee Titans, and Ryan Smyth of LA Kings... But honestly, I just a saw an NHL player with the same name as another pro athlete but I just can't remember the name. Ok, I remember now. Ryan Jones Welsh Rugby player, and Ryan Jones for Edmonton Oilers. Bq: -6 C, or 21 F.
