Hopefully a major learning experience.
I was thinking that too, but he certainly wasn't the only defenseman that never played on the big ice before. He was noticeably bad. USA would be dominating possession until Braun stepped on the ice, then they were hemmed in the d-zone for the entire shift. Every breakout pass was slow and off target.
