H&V Collision Centers of Troy, New York, the largest
independently-owned collision repair company in the Capital Region, has again
joined with the Albany Devils hockey team, the minor league affiliate of the NHL New Jersey Devils, as a sponsor for the 2011-2012
The partnership will include H&V Collision sponsoring
the "H&V Collision of the Game," where fans of the AHL franchise
can review video clips and determine the best collision between players during
Devils’ home games. H&V sponsored a "Collision of the Game"
contest during the Devils’ inaugural season in Albany during the 2010-2011
season. By voting, fans are automatically eligible to win an
Albany Devils jersey, with a drawing to be held each month during the
2011 AHL hockey season.
"We had a lot of great feedback after sponsoring
this contest last year, and are looking forward to partnering with the Albany
Devils to bring another great season of professional hockey to the Capital
Region," said H&V’s Vartan Jerian Jr. "The H&V Collision of the Game is a fun way to
involve fans of the Devils and give them an opportunity to win an authentic
Devils jersey during the 2011-2012 season. We’re looking forward to a
productive partnership between H&V Collision Centers and the Devils this
year and beyond.

third location in spring 2010 in Colonie. The opening of the
third location in Colonie came two years after H&V opened a shop in
Along with expansion that positions H&V to be the
largest multi-location collision repair operator in the Capital Region, H&V

environmentally safe. H&V also implemented modern management practices that
