Depends on what rulebook you play under. Under Hockey Canada's book, if you injure an opponent as a result of an infraction you are guilty of, it is an automatic Major and Game Misconduct.

Now the question needing to be answered, that most rulebooks do not, is whether or not blood is an injury. Under Hockey Canada rules, the double-minor for causing your opponent to bleed with a high stick is in the junior supplement, which means in minor hockey, your only options are a Minor or a Major and Game Misconduct.
