This year with the Habs, 12-0-0-0 -2 6 pims
Last year with the Habs, 7-0-0-0 -1 2 pims

So 19 games, zero points, -3 and 8 pims to date.
I saw him in the tampa game. Very passive as you suggest, but i think he just wants to keep his game simple more than anything else. I don't see him trying to be offensive, he was put on a 3rd line and kind of looks like he wants to learn and limit his mistakes. I still have faith in him being a #2 center but he'll need to be more involved in the play to do so.
