You can't say his being older doesn't help. At 18, you're fresh out of high school. You're a child. Don't you remember how immature you, and many of your friends/classmates were at 18? At 27, you're hopefully a completely different person in terms of maturity. And that plays a big role.

Plus, reading on Brunner's journey, it seems like it took him a few years to find his stride. He's been through his ups and downs already.

That said, it is still impressive for someone to come to a new country, with almost all new teammates, a higher level of competition all around, a different playstyle and smaller rink, more physical game, and make that adjustment as quickly as he has. There were a lot of things he needed to adjust to and he's done fantastically so far.
