Kevin Hayes' contract negotations have taken a strange turn.

The Chicago Blackhawks have yet to sign the 2010 first-round draft pick, and they have less than a month to do so, or else the Boston College forward will become a free agent.

Looks like talks have escalated.

Hayes' caption reads:

Been working on my Call of Duty skills. #weouthere

The baby seems to enjoy being used as an imaginary firearm. Thankfully, no live "ammunition" was fired.

How will the Blackhawks counter? Kittens? Puppies? 

Stay tuned to this developing story as we attempt to get answers to these very important questions.
