Update: The Gophers have landed commitments from two big defensemen who are playing for the national development program's U-17 team in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Both Jack Glover of Golden Valley and Ryan Collins of Bloomington played last season for Benilde-St. Margaret's as it won the Minnesota Class AA hockey title.

Glover is 6-3 and 173 pounds and Collins is 6-4 and 193.

Neither is expected to join the Gophers until at least 2014. The Gophers have nine defensemen -- one senior, four juniors, two sophomores and two freshmen.

The Gophers split at Michigan Tech over the weekend, and Saturday's 3-2 victory was coach Don Lucia's 600th.
