The Boston Bruins and Ryan Spooner are nearly $2 million apart in their contract negotiations.

Spooner, who is a restricted free agent, is asking for $3.85 million from the Bruins, while the team is countering with $2 million, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

The 25-year-old is coming off his second full season in the league during which he tallied 11 goals and 39 points in 78 games. Spooner is also coming off his second contract with the Bruins that saw him earn $1.9 million over two years.

Spooner and the Bruins are scheduled to go before a third-party arbitrator Wednesday.
