An odd offseason question has now been answered – at least partially. 

The Columbus Blue Jackets are continuing their relationship with Papa John's (Columbus) after company founder John Schnatter was revealed to have used racial slurs during a meeting. They will, however, be removing any images of Schnatter that were involved in marketing materials.

The info comes courtesy of a statement that was sent to local reporters.

It appears that local partnerships forged with Papa John's at the franchise level will continue, which for the Blue Jackets include Jackets 50, Papa John's Goal Patrol, CBJ Student Rush and the Papa John's Future Jackets.
